Dressing A Dresser
Merry Christmas to me! Yes, my husband asked what I wanted this year so I told him. I want another project, an old dresser, and what I need to refinish it. So that’s what I got. I spent a few weeks looking on craigslist for one made of solid wood, large and with plenty of detail and not over 100$. You know, the heavy 1970’s over the top wood carving is always a plus. I found an ad and sent the e-mail. 24 hours & 75 bucks later I had this in my bedroom.
Okay, lets talk about the elephant on the dresser. Yes, that’s one ugly mirror hutch! Huge, dark, all the glory of the 70’s-80’s. The worst part is, the husband likes it! Oh lawrdy no! So, I need to find a way to work with it, maybe screw it up and ‘have’ to pass it on. Right now, I think I may need to take the mirror out, and bead board the entire inside, add shelves that go all the way across, and take off some of the funky details. Or maybe keep the mirror? I don’t know! AHHHH!
Lets focus on the curves and feet! Love it!
Thinking about sanding and re staining the top, and painting the body and maybe the hutch too?
Well, What would you do?
