This dresser caught my eye when I spotted her. She beckoned me from across the room. This girl has PRESENCE. My apologies for the lack of a before picture...I think I was pretty excited to get started and just jumped right in! Her mirror was just a frame as the mirror had been broken in the past. The frame was gorgeous though. I wasn't certain if I wanted to incur the cost of having a new … [Read more...]

She was super old (her … [Read more...]
