I found this dresser at a flea market for $45. It was in fabulous shape, the perfect size for our bedroom, and well made (it's an old Bassett Dresser). I immediately saw the potential. I painted it with the same technique and materials I used for the refinished hope chest and I couldn't be happier! It just amazes me how a little paint can bring a 40 year old piece of furniture back to life.
Quite an improvement isn't it? This was a very straightforward project.
Voila! Here are a couple more detailed pictures of the finished product.
