Tonight the hubs and I started the dresser redoing… Here are some better before shots
You can see all the dings and scratches all over the top. I wanted to just sand it down, but after research it said I should strip it 1st. Well that and the hubs told me as well, but whatevs. We started the process by spraying the dresser down with thiner and waited 15 LONG minutes. I’m not a very patient person.
I was shocked how well it worked, took off most of the clear coat. You really can see a big difference in the pictures below. Next step will be the legs and drawers. After that let the sanding begin! And a big thanks to miko for his help xo
Well that was a long break, lets call it summer vacation…
A couple weeks back I was on Craigslist, I always search for furniture. I typed in Crate and Barrel and came across a queen sized bed frame for $100.00 OBO. Few emails later the bed was mine! It’s perfect for the guest room. Stay tuned for the new dresser the hubs and I found at a salvation army for $19.00. 🙂
I’m a fan of window shopping, and by that I mean searching the web for deals. Almost everyday I hit up my local Craiglist to see what’s out there. Here are some of the find in or around my area!
