Seeing it's mega potential, I picked up this fab ancient dresser.
I was told it sat in a barn for years and years.
Then was rescued, stripped and became a never finished project.
Luckily for it and for me, actually doing a project and transforming things is my happy place.
I took it home and began to work.
There has been gluing, taping, sanding and painting.
Then some more of it.
This piece has detail it's detail.
It's 95% done, so this is a giant tease. A before only.
I'm just glad I wasn't the one who did the stripping of the stain.
That dark drawer up there? It's not black paint, its stain.
Can you imagine this whole piece stained that dark -
Then removing it from the whole thing?
No wonder the previous owners didn't finish it.
They were probably sick of the poor thing.
But, believe me.
It is now lovely and has a whole new life ahead of it.
No dark stain in sight.
