Free Box Refurbished

Free Box Find Before Picture

Every good garage sale has a free box.  Most of the time the things that make their way into this box are either so worn or broken they should have been thrown away years ago.  For that reason, many people tend to walk right past without a glance... even I am guilty of that from time to time.  Every once in a while there is a gem among the junk.  My gem this weekend was hard to walk past because it didn't fit into a box.  It was a dresser.  Price - Free.  A few hours later and with a little TLC using supplies I already had from previous projects it was a perfect fit for our bedroom set and yet another frugal find. 

After a good cleaning it was time to prime!
Instead of purchasing new hardware I chose to spray paint the old instead.  I did find some at Menards I really liked which would total $7.   The great thing is I can change my mind whenever I like and it will completely change the look.

The Finished Product!  Total Cost- $0.
