Curvy Blue Dresser

The moment I saw this 6 drawer dresser at a store, I knew it'd be mine.
I just loved the curved front.
But she showed she'd been through a rough time...

First thing I did was...of course, sanding :)

Now,I'm looking this picture and I feel the wood pattern on the front is so nice.
But I wanted her to be pretty blue piece so that's what I did....

At least I decided to sand and stain the top :)
Usually I use an orbit sander but it leaves  small marks on wood,
making it NOT suitable when you want to stain something.
So I hand-sanded the entire top, boy it was a lot of work!

Then a beautiful surface started to show, I was so happy!

Isnt' this top gorgeous?  I was so proud of myself :) 

                                    I painted (it was more like dry-brushed) her blue and
waxed with clear and dark wax.
Now she's super smooth.

She looks better than before, won't you agree??
