Old Dresser Update: Guest remodel

Kathleen at Between Blue and Yellow updated an old dressers with a little bit of love

My sister brought me an old dresser from who knows where.  Let’s just say it had seen better days.  I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to do anything with it, since it had a laminate top.  And several dings and scratches in it.  But I worked my magic and it turned out better than I imagined.

And here is the after…..



Thanks Jamie!  It is now in my shop.  Please leave and comment and tell me what you think!  Thanks for stopping by 🙂 

How do you like the clean look of the old dresser?
