Moroccan Red Dresser Before and After

I saw this disaster at Goodwill and I held my breath and practically ran to the front to purchase before anyone else would see the hidden beauty.   I just couldn't believe it.  I even fit it in the back of my station wagon with the double jogging stroller.

I hadn't decided what color to paint it when I happened to be in Home Depot purchasing something for my husband and I fell in love with Moroccan Red by Behr paints.  Love at first sight.

I haven't refinished a piece of furniture in a while.  It took back burner.  But our new house in Maine desperately needs furnishing.  So I have my eye out.  And the desire has come back like a flood.  I am becoming addicted to junk once again.  Finding the beauty in things that others put in a trash heap.  Seriously addicting.

So here you go.  The restoration is finished.  Psalm 23:3 says He restores my soul.  As he does this deep, beautiful work on my I find things to bring back to life.  I have never felt more alive.


  1. I can't believe you scored this piece at Goodwill! It has such nice, classic, curvy lines. Your choice of paint color really took it up a notch. :)

  2. It looks fantastic! And what an amazing find at Goodwill! I haven't found anything there is soooooo long. Lucky you! Have a great weekend :)

  3. Beautiful color -- of course I love anything red. great job!

  4. You did a fantastic job with your painting and distressing. Of course, your choice of color was inspired. It is beautiful. I saw your link at the Redoux link party. Ann Marie @ Iris Abbey
