Dressed up Dresser

About a year ago, at the very beginning of my crafting endeavors, I bought this hideous mini dresser at Goodwill. It was only a couple of bucks...and really, I wasn't going to ruin it any further...

Since our pansies are in the background, I thought I'd show you an update. When we first bought them, they looked like this...
Today they look like this...

I beg to differ, it IS perfect! At first I thought the Before was the After, and THEN I thought, OH MY...
Very pleasantly surprised when I saw the after! The bird is so sweet, and I absolutely love yellow. :) (Popped over from BA)
