The Power of Paint!

Hi All!
The new year is off to a busy start! I am full of energy to get it all done. So this weekend I started it all and finished nada.  I may need to revisit my approach!
Fortunately, I decided to keep a piece that I completed at the end of the year, and plan to share today.
I scored this unique dresser a while back.  It was in pretty good shape, so I put it in my booth and was hopeful that I could sell it without painting it.

No luck.
So I brought it home and restyled her.
I left the top stained and reworked everything else.
I painted her and gave her a heavy distressing.
And my favorite part…
Using my Cricut and vinyl, I cut the numbers.  Just a little fun to a traditional piece.

Paint certainly transforms a piece.  What do you think?
I am keeping her for now.   At least for a while.
