We bought the bigger French Provincial (below right) from a local upscale consignment shop for 0; the ugly little yellow one was 0.I liked that they both had that French provincial design without being too matchy-matchy.All in all, the transformation of these two dressers from dated and discarded to charming and chic has been one of the most gratifying furniture projects I’ve done yet.They were a big undertaking (I think they took me two weeks to complete) and seemingly took forever to put the finishing touches on (accessories, etc); but I can guarantee they will be in our home for a long time to come!

Although it took a while to find a mirror in the right size with the right amount of glam; once we did, our transformation was complete.
