Industrial Style Dresser Makeover

Over at The Hardscrabble Home, Stephanie has been hard at work on an exciting project.  “My daughter and I went on a dumpster dive in a nice neighborhood.  No hepatitis shot needed,” she jokes.  “Somebody had moved and their throwaway furniture didn’t make the cut–this dresser was one of those throwaways.”

The dresser went through a dramatic transformation.  Stephanie sanded it down and stained the wood, giving it a distressed and oil stained appearance.  Weathered metal was added to the edges to add to the industrial vibe.  ” We wanted to give this piece the look that it has a history to it and boy, does it ever now!”  Stephanie exclaims, and I agree.  Terrific makeover!
