Introduction: Living Chic and Cheap; Redone Mini Guest Dresser
Just a week ago, my finance and I moved from Indiana to Tampa. We decided to get a two bedroom apartment so that family and friends can visit as often as possible. Unfortunately, we only had a bed for the room - and a budget. While doing some thrifting at a local Goodwill Superstore (the Goodwills are amazing here by the way), we found a small wooden night stand for $15. We thought would be perfect for a small dresser in the guestroom. But for those who don't know, I am extremely OCD and anal about how things look together in a room, so I decided to redo the bed and new dresser to match.
I decided to decorate the room with different shaded of yellow, with white accounts. Through my obsession with reading crafting blogs, I came up with the idea to use wallpaper brushed with Mod-Podge to line the shelves. Before I could go shopping for the perfect wallpaper design, I found an atlas poster during another thrifting trip and decided to use it inside. To tie the dresser into the rest of the room, I chose to use two different shades of yellow.
