BIG RED DRESSER REDO...

BIG RED

This dresser was given to me by a lady when i answered a craigslist add. I originally went there to pick up a small unfinished dresser and she told me she was moving and could'nt take alot of stuff with her. She let me have this dresser and some other pieces for free. I thank her very much. I sent her an email with the finished result to which she told me she was glad someone got the pieces that would appreciate them and
"who knew they could look so good"



BEFORE...





AFTER..
BIG RED !!!



I stained the top and painted the rest. restored the cork that was onthe top which acts like a shadow box and
replaced the knobs.



LOVE THE WAY IT TURNED OUT I
HOPE YOU LIKE HER..
