Dresser Redo

I picked up this old dresser Friday. I remembered to take a picture after I had already removed the ugly plastic decorative pieces on six of the drawers.  The dresser is laying on it's back and I'm standing on a chair taking this picture but you get the idea.


After sanding, priming painting, and giving it new pulls. I love the way it turned out.


It sold right away!!!

Antique Desk and Hutch

I picked up this antique desk last week.  It is solid wood and very sturdy but the finish was pretty scratched up.  I filled some nicks and scratches with wood filler, sanded, and painted it in a dark gray semi gloss.





I've had the hutch in the garage for several months and it fit nicely with the desk so I married the two pieces.  The hutch was white with floral contact paper on the back.  It took a while to get all that contact paper off but it cleaned up nicely.


I love the original brass pulls!!!!


I'm very happy with the end result and hoping she finds a new home soon!!!
