This dresser started it’s life (with our family) when I found it peaking out of the trash area at our student housing complex in California. I knew if I left it there until Hubby came home to help move it, someone else would claim it, so I moved it by myself across the street and into our apartment. Since that time we used it for toy storage. (Here are the best “before” pictures I could come up with.)
The drawers were starting to fall out occassionally because the sides were splitting apart a bit. It’s just laminated particle board, so the whole thing needed to be taken apart and put back together and reinforced with glue. I figured as long as (my Mom always said those were dangerous words) I was taking the whole thing apart, I might as well paint some roads on it for him. He’s had a love affair with matchbox cars since the first time he held one.
