A Love For Numbers: A Dresser Transformation

Before I get to the makeover, I want to remind you that the Creative Inspirations Linky Party is ON!  Click HERE
to link up your creations!  The party is in full swing!

I have a craving for numbers …. at least with regard to decor. Does anyone feel the same? My husband is a doll, but he doesn’t get it.  He doesn’t understand why I like to decorate with numbers at all.  He teases me actually. 

My love lives on. 
Here are some things that appeal to me:
pallets and crates - oh my1
Ciasak
number table
Sisters of the Wild West
Pinned Image
The DIY Showoff
How could I not adore numbers? 
They are so much fun to use in decorating! 
That was the inspiration behind this dresser makeover. 
Here is the before:

 Really not at all good-looking.
Solid and practical, but definitely not pretty.
The challenge drew me in.
I love making things prettty.
That’s what I do.
Isn’t this much better?

I like it.
He is mighty handsome.
I think he would look sweet in a man cave or a
teenage boy’s room.
I am thinking I may just name him Rico Suave.
