Craft Lab: 3 Drawer Dresser
I picked this up on CraigsList a couple weeks ago for $20. I couldn't wait to paint it. As, I went to clean this with a rag and soapy water, the grime was just not coming off. So, I took it out front and hosed it down very well. Oops, I sort of warped it a bit, but after the water dried up and with a few nails, it was back to normal. Next up, a wipe of liquid sandpaper over the old paint. After that, I primed and painted it with some paint we had left over form another project. I spray painted the old green/gold handles black. A little elbow grease, and a few hours and done. I'm so happy to be using this space again (the previous piece sort of fell apart).
