Dreamy Dresser Redo

...another redo...this time a dresser. I loved it's original layout of seven drawers - three on top and four on the bottom...it was appealing to the eye ( I love things in odd numbers ). Suddenly something that was classic in appearance, turned dreamy! I loved the "cracked pepper" top against the "cotton knit" bottom. 
Sanding this piece was a must as it had a pretty glossy finish on it. A palm sander was necessary for this step as the piece was so big in size. Then a coat of primer, two coats of paint. Some minor sanding for this piece, nothing too distressed to take away from the classic look, and a wonderful coat of wax and final buffing.
The original hardware was so awesome that I was sure to use it again, once the piece was complete...and the drawers were already lined with this amazingly cool vintage paper that coordinated with the dresser colors perfectly. The before and after photos are amazing. Take a look at the wonderfully Dreamy Dresser Redo!
