Here it is. Joel found this dresser for $10 on KSL and I told him to buy it before I even looked at a picture. I figured for $10, if I hated it, we could give it away or resell it easy enough. Surprisingly, I was excited when he brought it home. I thought it would be great for a first attempt at refinishing a dresser. No small details to worry about, basically flat and simple. At least that’s what I say now (Linsday, luckily I know myself too well to know that I’m too lazy to deal with anything more intricate). So now the hard part is deciding what to do with the thing. Definately new handles of course, but what color of paint? I’m thinking maybe leaving it black (which would simplify the process a lot), or maybe a cute green with glass pulls. I’d like to try antiquing it too. I also have some crazy images in my head of damask wallpaper on the drawer fronts, or maybe just on the top. Too much? Any suggestions? I’d love to hear your ideas!
