Before and After Dresser

I bought this awesome dresser on Craigslist, 1980's all the way.  I wonder why that every looked good but I'm sure it must have.  It was solid wood and stored in my closet, holding junk , my treasures.

nice crowbar gina ;)

I quickly slapped some primer on it as to hide the water stains, mouse droppings, and other unknown that lived in this dresser, but for 5 bucks I wasn't complaining.

And there it sat in the closet, then we we do every two years and I had this weird landing that need something.  I quickly found the blog,, I watched her video on, and ordered Wisteria White.  I ripped the molding off, sanded and painted. 

The end result was an awesome turn around.  I reused the pulls and sprayed them with Rustoleum Hammered spray paint to keep my project with-in my budget of ALMOST free.

I also bought the matching dresser, which is my hubby's work bench, I stole all the pulls from it and replaced the knob with the stolen pulls.
