    “6. Buy ugly dresser and make it into something gloriously shabby chick for the girls”

    I bought a $10 child’s armoire at a garage sale years ago. I stripped it, stained the top, and spent a few days meticulously painting it. Then I asked my husband to help me take it to the street and slide it along the asphalt to give it some character. He stared at me like I was out of my mind!
