Remember the dresser that I talked about in my Yard Sale Finds post last week? If not, here’s a few refresher pictures…
It was in pretty decent shape and had nice lines. The finish was just kind of gross, and it also needed all new drawer stops.
For a while now, I have been admiring furniture that with unpainted tops and I thought this would be the perfect piece to try the look out on.
So, I sanded down the top and restained it with a dark walnut stain. I used Varathane brand. It didn’t turn out as a dark as I thought that it would, but still I was happy with the end result.
I then painted the rest of the dresser white and added brushed silver knobs to replace the ugly wooden ones that it came with.
Here it is all prettied up:
