This old dresser has always (and will always) have a very close place in my heart. I spent hours sanding it down (forgoing the stripper) and then finished it with black stain. It is one of my very favorite before and afters but I am absolutely stunned and SO excited that it made #1!!! The Ancient dresser from nowhere

And last (but certainly not least!) is one of my newer posts. I had my heart set on a screened door to cover our wood “closet” under our staircase but I just couldn’t find one to fit and I didn’t want to just make a brand new one from scratch. Then I found a big old window screen out between a couple of our out buildings and I got to work! #10 How to: Build a screen door our of an old window
