Before & After
I purchased this dresser last year and had it sitting in my office for MONTHS.
It was in decent shape, but had a few deep scratches and nicks along the top.
The original hardware had certainly seen better days and I knew it would need to be replaced.
For this makeover, I decided to remove the wooden handles along the bottom two drawers as I felt they dated the piece a little too much. They were simple to remove, only being held on with a couple small screws. I filled the holes, give the entire piece a good sanding and a couple coats of primer.
A friend asked if I would refinish it for her the same way I had refinished a recent set of bedside tables she had purchased from me. A couple coats of white satin paint and a few glossy clear coats later, I loved the way it looked!
With the addition of the new satin nickel drawer pulls, I think this little retro dresser fits right in to any modern home now.
And really, who can resist those cute little pencil legs now!
Thanks for stopping by!
