#Shopyourstash - Dresser Refurbished

I love this challenge because it encourages bloggers and our readers to appreciate what they already have. We all know times are hard and we need to cut back on the shopping. Lord knows I am trying. Today I am going to talk about a gift from my Mama but I was so impressed with her DIY skills that I just have to rave about it. 

I  had wanted a dressing table for ages, so that doing my hair and make up was easier and I could store everything in one place neatly rather than all over the place. I really didn't expect to get one for christmas my parents were dead sneaky about it. So the dresser started out like this. 
Not an exact pic this is one similar 
Functional yes but not really much to look at you would agree. My bedroom has a bit of a boudoir feel and my Ma said she wanted to make sure the gift was a perfect fit. She is awesome with DIY and customising things for their own personal touch. So she set to work. She sanded it down and treated it.repainted and varnished. 
You have to agree it turned out amazing! Black to match my room more and the mirror I already had. I also love that she changed the handles to add a little sparkle into my life. These crystal style handles make opening drawers much more fun.
The mirror was also sanded down and painted as it was originally white.The feather boa isn't attached but I have nowhere else to put it and everyone needs some glamour. The leopard print jewellery case was also from my parents but the Christmas before.
I also love this vintage bush and mirror set. I picked it up for just £1. I love the colour and pattern. I always see these in charity shops and think they must have a tale to tell. How many young ladies dressing tables have they adorned before?
I also love this vintage 60s dresser set which I need to start using a little more. I also got this for Christmas from my parents but you can pick them up at lots of vintage stalls. Keep you eyes open.
What do you think? Did she do a good job?
