Dresser Makeover

We found this dresser on the side of the road that said free on it, in our neighborhood. We didn’t even bring our car around to pick it up, just had a little dolly and brought it home.

This is what it first looked like. Anyone looking at the dresser knew something needed to change. It needed knew hardware as one of them was missing and it either needed a coat of paint or sanding.

I really liked this dresser that was on pintrest that a lady had sanded and the wood was very light and she said it was bleached. I tried to bleach this, but it would not change the color. I really didn’t want to paint it.

After it got sanded and I picked out new hardware. I like it, but the older hardware had made circles around the pulls and so I put wood filler around it and then I decided to do some kind of paint on it. I had pinterest be my inspiration.
Here is a progress shot of what I was planning on doing.
I didn’t want it to be crazy, so I only did two colors. I am not in love with it, but I am thinking the bedroom I want it to go in will end up being a little bit retro.
