One of the many things that was dumped on us... I mean given to us from my Dad's big move was this old dresser
Oh and the drawers
It was my mom's growing up and it was also mine growing up. It is pretty big so I think somewhere in high school I switched dressers with my little brother so I could have more room space. This dresser had definitely seen better days, I use to spill nail polish remover on it all the time, we would leave our ice cold beverages with no coasters, and look at this signature mark my brother carved in it when he was sent to his room: The words "I hate Dad".
The dresser was in the line up for the garage sale, but I decided to give it a makeover.
So I sanded: With sand paper we already had, unfortunately I managed to break every nail during this process.
I spray painted it baby blue (spray paint was $3.67 from Lowe's)
Painted and Sanded some more
Bought new handles from Home Depot that cost $24 for 3 knobs and 6 handles
I'm still waiting for Brian to drill holes for the rest of the handles but I have finally found something that has totally excited him to finish projects... I will post this next week.
When the rest of the handles are put on and we move the dresser upstairs, I will take a completed picture of the project.
This dresser is going to go in my Hobby Room so I have a place to store all my fabric, paints, accessories, etc...
I did have quite the audience in the garage during the production of this piece
