I am not sure if this happens in your area or not...but people are always throwing away furniture and such along side of the road. Well I am the type of person that will look at something and think " with a coat of paint...." Anyways...the other day the neighbor threw away an old dresser. I made my husband go get it. He loves doing this..lol. So yesterday I painted it white and then put antiquing on it. Had the paint and the antiquing supplies at home. Violla....looks like a brand new dresser. Now I can either use this dresser or possibly sell it. All it cost me was my time. Hope this gives some people an idea.
