My Copycat...{purr}

When Debbie @ Debbiedoo's issued a copycat call
for her Copycat Link Party,
this seemed like a good time to show you a copycat project I did last year.
This was only the 4th post I wrote for my blog, so I may have only had
2 followers at the time who may have seen it, so this seems like a good time
to show it to you again.
I picked this dresser and the matching bed up at an auction for $1...
yes ONE DOLLAR for BOTH.  They had the ugliest paint job in the world
and there were NO bidders.  When I realized no one bid, I offered a dollar
after the bidding ended and I came home with them.
See...really bad.
They sat in my shed for awhile when I noticed that my dresser was
quite similar in style to Miss Mustard Seed's dresser.
I was on a "plaster sheet music all over everything" kick at the time,
so I thought I'd just keep plastering and copy her dresser.
Not only did I copy her dresser, I decided to style it similar
to the way she had it styled in her photo.
If you want to see my original post and some more of the
details of the finished dresser, it is HERE
feel free to leave me a comment...that poor post is hurting for comments! :0)
Well...how do you think I did?
{if you're wondering why I have a scrap of fabric hanging out
of the bottom drawer, it's because I couldn't find one of the
drawer handles when it was time to put them back on!
I found it later and reattached it!}
 
Unfortunately, I don't have a space in my house for this dresser
right now, so it's sitting in my office, being used to hold, what else...?
SHEET MUSIC!  I have a huge stash of sheet music and 
antique book pages, so I keep them in the drawers. 
Someday, I hope to use this in the house, but that's a few
remodeling projects away from now!

Be sure and visit Debbiedoo's and see all the great copycats out there!
DebbieCopycatButton Copy cat challenge with a twist in the making!
Blessings,

  1. It's gorgeous!
    I collected a lot of sheet music when our church was doing a clean out, so far I have only used it on little projects, but I hop to do something like this one day, when I find the right piece!

  8. You really did an amazing job--which I noted in my comment On the Original Post, being the dutiful little follower that I am!:P I can't believe that the dresser was *part* of a $1.00 purchase. I was excited that ToysRUs had the 24-count crayons on sale, 4/$1.00, this week, thinking that was quite the steal!
