When I first saw this dresser, which was upside down on its top, with the drawers jammed, for some reason I couldn't pass it up.. Little did I know of its secret.. Not to mention its flaws. I took it without thoroughly inspecting it, I was excited. I could see past the years of its filth ( this thing was filthy). The shape was so cute, the curves and the 2 mini drawers had me sold.
This is the before. It was a honey color but after all the scrubbing with ammonia,
it was 5 shades lighter than the original color.
You can see al the grime run down!
After all the bar work on the drawers, scraping the veneer and fixing the bottoms ..
This is the beautiful ever after!
Did I mention it was actually a complete set with the mirror....
The drawers were stained 3 coats with Kona. (This wood was stubborn it didn't want to catch the stain)
They're protected with Varathanes water based poly, gloss.
The beautiful knobs are from Hobby Lobby, which go perfect with the paint color, which is a medium grey.
Oh.. Here's that secret I mentioned.... A SECRET DRAWER!! A secret button opens it, convienient for your secret things.
The legs are so cute, not too cury, yet not too simple.
Thanks for looking!
