So, I've had this dresser for MANY years. I think I paid $20.00 for it at a local thrift store (back before thrift stores started charging retail prices for their furniture).
I liked it okay and it served it's purpose. It holds dish cloths table cloths, potatoes and onions. As well as cook books and a whole drawer of extra spices. I like my extra drawers!
She was ready for a makeover though. She just didn't feel a part of the new kitchen remodel but look at her now!!!!
I was trying to decide between these two knobs.
I ended up going with the carved ones on top. Super fun.
I used the same technique with the dresser top as I have with my kitchen table and the back stairs (which I never blogged about, must remedy that).
I sanded off the whole top of the dresser before I stenciled and applied the stain.
I only primered and painted the rest of the dresser/ no sanding.
The finished product. I know that this isn't a perfect piece, no heirloom, not something that will even stand the test of time but I do enjoy giving a face lift to a nice piece of furniture.
Stay crafty my friends.
