In the beginning of our never ending winter I got this antique dresser.
Is that not the worse picture ever?!
I do believe that this day that I took it, the tempurature was waaaaaayyyyy in the negatives. So far in the negatives we forgot what the positives felt like. So that is why the picture was so bad because there was no way I was going to open that garage door to get some resemblance of natural light. Plus I am just a wimp in the winter.
Remember when I made my huge picture frames?
Well, this dresser was the cutting board for the project. I live on the edge that way. ;)
Notice the dresser on the left and you can kind of see how the bottom drawer is all wonky.
So sorry for the bad pictures, but you can see that it is brown and the bones of the piece were good.
So when it warmed up to at least in the 30s (which is what these people here call spring) I started working on this piece.
I took out the bottom two drawers and made shelves.
Then I added trim.
I stained the top and painted the rest white and added some big crystal knobs.
I love how the top is curvy.
Here is something else that I just got done. I got this mirror with a dresser, but the two didn't really look good together. Being the ever demanding person that I am, I declared them divorced and seperated them.
Here is the before (it is leaning against the dresser it came with). I will be showing you the dresser next week, I am still working on it.
And here is the after.
Isn't the power of paint just crazy?
Ok Chicagolanders let me know if you are interested in the mirror.
