The Dresser Has Found A Forever Home

by | Dec 7, 2016 | DIY | 8 comments

Even before I was blogging, I enjoyed painting furniture, painting walls and decorating. But I have never enjoyed or been sooo happy with a piece as I am with this one.

If any of you are like me, you just want to see the finished product. It’s kind of like reading the last page of a book to see what happens.

Wait, what? No one besides me when starting a new book reads the last page first?  🙂

If you aren’t a last page reader, then skip this picture, I’ll build back up to it.

Let’s jump back to yesterday. Here’s where we left off.

Today, I once again heated up the garage and got to work brushing on a second coat of paint. When it had dried, I added the four casters to the legs before setting it upright.

Then, one by one, I stained the fronts of each remaining drawer and once the stain dried, I added the new pulls.

The top drawer needed the holes moved so all of the pulls were lined up. (Sometimes I can be a little OCD…okay a lot of times I can be a little OCD.)

It was getting late in the day, so I brought the dresser into the house to get better light. The dresser I had in this spot before is now up in the guest room, so I had a nice blank slate to work with.

The more pictures I took the more I fell in love with this dresser.

My first intention was to sell it, but I love it here! It’s staying…..for now…..until I find my next dresser project to work on.
