Project 1: 1 Highboy, 2 projects

I picked up this broken highboy dresser last week.  I spent a little more on it than I normally do for pieces, but this was going to be made into 2 different things so it justified itself.

Poor thing fell apart at the top and lost a drawer during a move.  I saw its potential and picked it up.

For the first project I used the base to create a dresser.  All it needed was a top and a paint job to make it good as new.  Guess what I used for the top?  A cabinet door!  If you remember these cabinet doors, you know I picked up quite a few of them.  I've made a few things with these doors too.  

If you're curious, check out the posts here and here.

I chose Miss Mustard Seeds Lucketts green.  It's such a pretty green.  I didn't get much chipping with this piece, but it still turned out very pretty.

Are you anxious to see what I did with the other part of this broken highboy?  

Well,  I'm anxious to show you, but you'll have to wait a few days.
