he said " I used to have the same kind of dresser growing up."
So I guess this is from 60s, when he was a little kid :)
See the old style a la 60s? So dated.
He couldn't believe I was getting this, but I saw the potantial.
First is of course, sanding.
It already looks better!
I leave some because they add a nice, old feel but I often fill some holes & dings it suffered from the previous? life.
Primed and painted grey, then I added white lines around the drawers.
Spray painted the knobs in metalic silver.
Also I painted inside white.
Then I waxed it to smooth finish.
And it's done!
I'm so happy how it turned out, looks pretty and modern.
