Poor thing was found on the side of the road with a sad black spray paint job. I couldn't pass it up with those pretty legs!
It was peeling and warped on the top so that had to be fixed.
I took advice I read on For the love of wood - she says when you get a top that is peeling, simply take it off and turn it over and that is exactly what I did. You have to patch the holes but that is easier than scraping or gluing!
It took A LOT of sanding and scraping to get all the paint off and to get the top nice enough to finish. Since I was painting this piece and not staining it, it didn't have to be exactly perfect. After priming and painting this is what she looks like. I found the cute star knobs at a garage sale.
I hope you enjoyed this dresser makeover. Please feel free to leave a comment, I look forward to hearing what you have to say.
