Before http://pic9.picturetrail.com/VOL283/1709786/3491077/44262030.jpg and After http://pic9.picturetrail.com/VOL283/1709786/3491077/44261985.jpg

Hope those pics show up!  It took me about 3 days to do the whole process of painting, stenciling, and sealing.  I bought new drawer pulls for about 88 cents each at Home Depot.  I'm totally satisfied with the results!

Hey! No problem.  The dresser was free (curbside find); the paint was about $9 (ordered just the color I wanted from Home Depot, so you could probably find cheaper); the knobs were 88 cents a piece; and the cost of misc. supplies (paint brush, stencil stuff, etc.).  Total= $$30-35

Wow, great find! Your simple additions really added to an already great piece. What did you seal it with?

wow!  the finished product is great.  I'm surprised that you didn't strip it and clean it and stuff.  That's really what it looks like by the quality of the outcome!

very very cool.
