Blue Dresser

$30.00 Craig's list find
A heavy well built dresser with real brass handles. In good shape...just needed a good cleaning and some paint.

 Brass handles I later soaked in vinegar and salt.  Cleans them right up.  How to know if it's real brass...put a magnet to it...if it sticks it's just brass plated. 

 Handles cleaned up nicely don't ya think?
My $30.00 dresser was re listed on Craig's list for $135...SOLD
$30 dresser
$15 paint
sold for $135
equals $90 profit...not too bad
I realize I could have listed it for more because as soon as I listed it I had several calls.  It was a well made dresser.  I guess I am still a bit insecure in my work.  $90 profit for some dresser fun is worth it tho, for me.

Off to a friends house for some more dresser fun...


  1. Jeni, it's so nice! You should have charged more for sure. Next time.

  2. You totally could have sold that for a lot more Jeni! You are awesome at this kind of work and deserve to pay yourself well :)

  3. Thank you ladies...that's sweet of you.
