It was a wrong turn that brought this dresser into Jen’s (aka Girl In the Garage) life. “On the side of the curb I saw this huge, sad, ugly dresser. I cannot even imagine what kind of hideously 80′s bedroom decor this was once a part of,” she laughs.
As badly damaged as it was, Jen still managed to fall in love with the carved cupboard doors. She admits, though, that those carved doors were a bear to paint! “The dresser was disgustingly filthy, there were a million little grooves on the doors, and I got discouraged,” she says. Not all makeovers are smooth sailing! After what seemed like a billion coats of paint, the dresser was a soft gray. Jen renewed the existing hardware with glossy black paint. The finished dresser is astonishingly beautiful–especially when you compare it to the before pictures!
