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!
