Well this turned out to be quite the project. It all started when I saw a piece of furniture on the side of the road, and like every good junker I was like “I have to have this!” My father came and met me, he looked at me like I was crazy, we loaded it up and headed home. It was missing half of its doors. Here is what it looked like:
So I had a pretty genius idea….. I like the way the dresser looked with out the doors. The drawers on the inside were unique and I thought “hmm… maybe I can refinish this dresser with out the doors!” I had to start sanding the piece. It had this plastic chipping all over the place, almost like it was a sealant coat on it. I was able to sand it down to the bare surface.
Once it was sanded, I patched up all the door hinges etc….
The piece was ready to go, but what next? I knew this dresser was going to have a much more simple look. I decided to do a two tone. The drawers are a light creamy yellow, and the frame of the dresser is a light gray. Here is the finished product withsome light distressing.
