I transformed an £11 chest of drawers into a £906 Wayfair dupe – & people can't believe the results
Stylish furniture doesn't have to come with a hefty price tag – as one savvy woman has proven.
Christina, who goes by the acronym @flipdaddie, took to TikTok and shared a short clip of the wooden dresser she bought for £11 from a thrift store.
Posting a photo of the Blair 7 drawer 60" W solid wood dresser from Wayfair which retails at £906, she then explained: "I've been loving this dresser form Wayfair."
"It's way overpriced so I'm going to remake it using that Goodwill piece and then sell it to make a profit."
She continued: "First, I sanded the whole piece, removed the old hardware, drilled in some gold leg."
Next, she used some filler to fill in the gaps, primed, and spray-painted the bottom of the dresser black to match the inspo, and then painted the rest of the piece green.
