One of my Roadkill Rescue readers Liz, found this old, beaten up dresser in the back of an office building. She said it was solid and super heavy and her sister-in-law helped her cause by helping her load it up. Liz knew she could make this painted brown/black cabinet piece into an awesome chest of drawers.
Liz sanded the top feverously, filled in all cracks and joints with wood filler, and added crown molding to the top and bottom. She wanted it to look almost dirty and distressed but still stay classy. She used a Kona stain on the top with a cream base and a chocolate glaze. She sprayed the drawer pulls with chocolate metal spray paint and everything got a good coat of polyurethane. It cost her about $38 for her makeover.
On my goodness can you believe it?? What a transformation. Liz you rocked it! She isn’t a blogger but she sure can be, right? So instead justs give Liz a round of applause…ha!
