Dresser Project Almost Done!

Grandma's BedroomLet me lead you down memory lane a bit. Don’t ask me why I never took a complete ‘Before’ picture of this dresser, but I didn’t. Here it is in the foreground of this particular picture. I hope that this is enough for you to realize what color it was before. Somebody had attempted to do a faux finish on it so that it would somewhat look like wood.


Dresser BeforeHere it is, again, in all of it’s glory. It really wasn’t much to look at. I knew that it was solid wood so there was potential for it. I just had to find it.




Dresser 11-28-13I think that I found it! What do you think? The lighting isn’t the best, and I am still trying to find the perfect hardware for it, but this is the final finish.

    Um, WOW!!! That is gorgeous! Unbelievably awesome job (or at least it would be unbelievable if it were anyone but you – I knew you’d do something impressive with it)! So glad it turned out beautifully for you!
