The Dresser is finish. Hardware is pending!

I finished the Dresser and placed it back into Jen’s bedroom in time for my brother to come visit from Nashville.  She has a lot of special dolls so I wanted to be able to showcase them on the hutch that she used to have books and other things as well as some of the dolls.  I removed the books and placed the dolls and a few other things that she wanted to have in her room.  I hope she likes the new look!  I really enjoyed refinishing the dresser.  I learned a few things and can use it the next time I try something.  Thanks again to my friend Heidi for her help!  I will keep looking for the hardware that I need for the drawers.  -K

Refinishing A Dresser

My neighbor was having a garage sale back in November and had this fabulous dresser that I could refinish.  I decided that since my daughter is in college now that she needed to not have the dresser that she had painted purple with flowers.  Besides, one of these days maybe I will get her room for my crafts… I want to be able to enjoy it too.  Well I had just gotten her room back in order after doing some major cleaning and organizing.  But had someone who wanted the purple dresser for their 2 year old so it was High time for me to get the dresser done.  So Heidi and I got busy.  First we emptied the shelves which sit on the dresser and what was left in the dresser.  Then we decided to paint the wall as well.  So here is a picture of the dresser before we did anything to it, but after we took it apart.  I have a picture in my mind of what I think I want, but whether it will happen I am not sure.  I have visions of a somewhat distressed slightly white washed in places finish.. But only time will tell.  I will keep you posted.  -K
