Tuesday's customer inspiration - Rachel's transformed show stopping dresser!

Welcome to this week's installment of customer inspiration were we showcase something purchased from our dreary warehouse which is teeming with fabulous furniture finds and amazing people (both my volunteers and my customers!) and how wonderful it looks in someone's home (either exactly as it looked leaving the store or how it's been transformed into something even better).

Today I bring you a lovely dresser that Rachel and Ben bought a while back and though it wasn't bad - it also wasn't their style until a simple coat of paint changed everything!

Here's Rachel's email:

Hi Susan,  My husband Ben and I came into Jubilee a little while back and picked up a beautiful 9-drawer dresser.  The dresser is so big and our rooms are so small that it only fit in our living room.  Which is nice because we really did not have any furniture in there.  The dresser was in great shape, and the paint job was not terrible, just not our taste.  So after a little sanding and a few coats of white paint we have a beautiful new piece with TONS of storage!  The pictures that now hang above the dresser are of the Museum of Science and Industry building before it became the museum it is today and went through a renovation of its own.  We love this dresser and get tons of compliments.  We surely will be back at Jubilee searching for our next project soon!


 This last photo includes Rachel and Ben's Whoodle (Wheaton Terrier and Standard Poodle mix), Hank (isn't he adorable?!).

Many thanks to Rachel for taking lots o'photos and email me at sgalbraith@outreachcommin.org!  I love the transformed dresser and your home (what I can see of it) is lovely!

Make sure you head back here Friday morning when I'll  have photos of some of the unbelievable things Dan and Chris are picking up this week including several Pottery Barn rugs!  Sigh. Love.
