When I moved out of my parents house and got married, I asked my parents if I could take a dresser they were planning on giving away.  Come to find out, it was the dresser that my maternal grandparents bought for their bedroom in the 1950s.  It was part of a set, which I only have the chest of drawers and the dresser.  The chest of drawers is too damaged to fix.  Any ways at the time, I did not realize all of this nor that it was once stained.  Once I did, I began to work on it.  Below are the before and after pictures of it!

Because I am redoing a bunch of pieces of furniture and I'm on a time line we did the all in one.  It was very easy!  Smiley

I tried some of the all in one stuff on a coffee table my dad gave me; it seemed to be a little too tacky or something...

I think I'm better off with just paint  Grin You did do an awesome job though!

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.
