 Remember this reading corner I created when I did a New Living Room Layout?
Well I went to the Antique Store Last Week and found the PERFECT piece of 
Furniture for this sweet little corner.

 This dresser was plain without the numbers but was an AWESOME $20!
I knew I could modernize it and bring the black in by adding some numbers.
It's totally what Pottery Barn would do;)

I have a Cricut and could've cut the numbers out myself.
However, Not everyone has their own personal cutting device.
So....I found a $3 alternative that anyone can do!

At Target, by the Poster Board, I found these 4 inch pre-cut
Numbers.  The pack included 180 letters and numbers in black.
You can decoupage (or use 2-sided tape) to modernize any 
piece of furniture.

The Reading Nook has been transformed into a Pottery Barn-ish  Nook.

 Now I have the Perfect spot for my Vintage Tiffany Blue Type Writer.
I found it hidden away on a top shelf at the Thrift Store last year.
It was an amazing $3!  It works too!

There you have it!  A $3 Make-Over for a $20 Dresser:)

Stay Fashionable! Love,Candy


  1. Cute! I NEED a dresser with drawers like that SOOO badly! I've got all my craft/scrapbooking stuff just stuffed in a corner and it makes the room look so junky and unorganized. I should go to some of the antique places around here and look for something cute. My grandma has a big dresser drawer that I am patiently waiting to get when she moves out of her house, but she is being stubborn and won't move, so who knows when I'll get it!

  2. What an awesome find! I have plenty of thrift store furniture, but none of it is that cute!

  3. Great find! I love the typewriter
