White Dresser B & A.

Before:

My $10 dresser I bought from a man about to unload it at Save n Serve.

(Was that bad?)

After.

I have never had a redo take so long to completion. I redid her so many times. Tromped to hardware so many times.

The 70s drawers pulls. Lets just say that prying off those nasty rascals made me feel very carpenter-esk. Which felt quite nice. I do love my tools. Also putting on knobs is super fun, gratifying, easy.

Tip: To save money. In an old bin I had 4 knobs the same, and 1 odd one. I just bought 3 new knobs matching the odd one (see above). Resulting in 4 same– and 4 same. I kinda like the look it created.

She`s not perfect, but I love her just the way she is!

    I love what you did with the dresser! Someday if I live in something besides my teeny-tiny house, I’ll be able to buy the cheap old furniture I see here and there and have fun re-doing! 🙂 I *love* the looks of the rainbow cake in the previous post too. If I could get over my “do you know how TERRIBLE those dyes are for your system” syndrome for a couple of hours, I might have to make one for one of my children’s birthdays coming up in the next month or two. 😉
