Saturday was warm enough to get outside and sand some furniture and boy did it feel good.

Saturday I picked up this dresser at our local thrift shop for $5.  It had good bones but was dated and the drawer slides had come off and were inside the drawers.  I had to reattach them. It is solid wood and very heavy.  I can't move it by myself even with the drawers out.

There were stickers on the side.  Overall it was in nice condition.  I removed the stickers and went over it with my sander. I roughed up the finish just enough to make the new paint stick well.  I gave it three coats of grey semi gloss then added the brass pulls that were on it when I bought it.

I love the gray color with the brass pulls.  The simple shape gives it a modern look.  Simple clean lines!


 
Many more furniture pieces to come!
