Dresser Makeover

I'm so glad you are here!  Welcome to The Sasse Life where I'm sharing all my DIY projects.  Let's start off with my son's room.  Cooper's room has been a work in progress that has been taking longer than we planned. Oh well, slowly but surely. This was his room shortly after we moved in.

The dresser you see in the picture on the left was our steal. When we were living in San Diego and we had a roommate move in with us. Our roommate didn't have any furniture beside a bed. Then it all happened. One day when we came home right next to the dumpster at our apartment complex was a dresser and a tv stand. So we quickly snatched the dresser and it was perfect for his room (did I mention it was SOLID wood) The thing weighed a ton. We couldn't believe that someone was throwing it away. When we moved from San Diego, my husband and I took it with us.

As you can see the dresser was a little sore on the eyes with it's outdated
personality. So we decided to fix it up a little bit!

TAA DAA! Cooper's "new" dresser/changing table :)
