Old Dresser Renewed!


So we had this awesome antique dress with great details but needed an uplift. I lover older furniture because it is built to last. Unfortunately it is often beat up or has an outdated finish. So I redid mine and I spent quite a while sanding it, then priming it, and then painting it. Add some new handles and waa laa....awesome new dresser! I'm never getting rid of this thing now. I love it!

  2. I am loving it in white! I'd be so pumped if you'd come and link this (and any other projects you'd like to show off) to the Head to Head Showdown, going on right now at www.icantstopcrafting.blogspot.com ~Jen

  3. What a fabulous piece you have now and you're right. It was probably made in North Carolina by a company of craftsmen who were proud of the product they created and sold.

  4. I have a similar dresser that I'm about to refinish. Older furniture really does hold up better! I hope you stop by my party and link up…
