Guest Post from Saturday Mornings!

Hello all, 

Do you remember my first guest post - Potli Bag Tutorial over at Saturday Morning. Now it is Dana's turn over here @ Adithis Amma Sews. Guest post on a Saturday Morning from Saturday Mornings!!!

Over to Dana!

Hello!  I am so excited to be here!  My name is Dana and I am the author and creative design behind Saturday Mornings!  Come check out my blog!  I want to share with you a post that was written last year.  It was my most viewed post of 2010, and still a favorite!

I once received an old press board chest of drawers that I have used to keep socks and other small items in.  I have always loathed the thing but I needed the space it provided me.  One morning, I vowed to have that piece of junk looking spectacular before nightfall.  Here is the piece, sans drawers, and a picture of the drawers.  At some point in your life, you have more than likely owned something similar.

I removed the handles and spray painted them in the front yard, along with the dresser.  The drawers were not a victim of the aerosol can. 

I covered the fronts of the drawers with fabric, using a spray adhesive.  you could do so much with this!  Imagine the color combinations and different fabrics you could go with!  I  waited on everything to dry, and I had a brand new look for an old eyesore!

I was thrilled with the results, and it took far less time than my Rocker Revamp did.  Let me know what you think of it!
