Pottery Barn-ish

The other day my Mother in Law called and ask my hubby if we would want the dresser she had. She was going to get rid of it. He said no!! WHAT??? NO?? That's were I stepped in and said "honey, call your mom back and tell her YES we would love the dresser!" I then told him that I would love to use the dresser to place our TV on. So later that day he went and picked up the dresser. After a few coats of paint and a little reconstruction.....I LOVE IT! It's pretty and very Pottery Barn-ish without the Pottery Barn-ish cost.

Before we had a large and bulky Tv entertainment center. (I forgot to take a pic of it before moving it out of the house.)
Here's the BEFORE photo.

And this is what it looks like now.....love, love, love it.
Thanks honey...you did an awesome job!!
