Sprucing up furniture has always been an interest of mine. When I was pretty young, I’m not sure exactly how old but maybe 9 or 10, I built my own nightstand out of my dad’s scrap wood. And I do mean scrap! I nailed together a few pieces of plywood and painted designs on it using poster paint. One summer when I was older I stripped our metal porch chairs and glider of it’s 10 layers of paint and repainted it. They turned out pretty well, but I don’t think my mom loves them anymore because she’s been trying to sell them… Now that I have a garage with space, I took my childhood dresser and gave it a new life.
The before pictures. I believe it is a maple hardwood. Not really my style anymore.
What do you think? Honest opinions please! Still at my parents’ house is another dresser, a lower sized dresser with mirror, and a desk. I think I’m going to remove the outdated mirror top and refinish the lower, wider dresser to match this one.
