A lady asked my husband to take this dresser to the dump for her. He brought it home and I immediately wanted to try and make it better. But it was missing a drawer and it looked kinda rough. I asked my DH about it and he said that the lady had the extra drawer and he would ask her if I could have it and if she wouldn’t mind us keeping it. I picked the drawer up the next day and went to work.
then I cleaned, scrubbed and otherwise disinfected the entire thing.
I decided to keep the old handles, I kind of liked them, plus they just don’t make things like this anymore. I know some of you are thinking that there is a reason for that. BUT I kind of think they’re charming. Anyways I did spray paint them a nice black color. Then I sanded and painted my guts out.
And here she is now. I didn’t get a chance to take pictures of it before it was put in my girls room, but I think you get the idea.
Someday I imagine it painted a nice red color and used in our family room under our t.v. holding DVD’s and the like. But for now it’s still a dresser.
