I wanted to show you the dresser that my husband and I refinished. My mom bought this dresser when my brother was born in the late 70's. It was a dresser/changing table. Somehow I inherited it and used it while growing up. When I was a teenager I refinished it white. The original color was a dark stain and as children we stuck our garbage pail stickers on it. My brother carved his name in it. So it was time for a refinish. As we were thinking of a dresser we could put in our loft to hold our children's Wii accessories, this dresser popped into my mind. It definitely needed a little face lift. So we took out two of the drawers and added a new center piece for support. We added a new bottom and bead board to the back and the inside sides. Painted it my favorite pull everything together color, black.
I left a lot of the character on the dresser so you might see a few rough areas.
|The finished dresser. Beautiful!|
|I love the decorative bottom. I purchased the baskets at Michael's for 50% off.|

|I added these beautiful crystal nobs that I purchased at Hobby Lobby for 50% off.|
|On the bottom I put this 12x12 damask self adhesive fabric paper and then mod podged over it for extra durability. This took a while because I had to make sure that the pattern lined up exactly. I also lined the drawer with the same fabric.|
