I have been wanting to put this on here forever, and you will see in the pics it was taken around Christmas time Smiley hehe

This dresser was used by me in high school, but orginally was my Aunt's when she was a teenager. It's from around the late 50s early 60's but was not my style at all. None the less I took it with me when I got married, because we had nothing! Finally I got the idea to sand and stain the dresser, then add new hardware.....and this is what I got!

Before (my hubby started taking drawers before I could take a pic!)



AFTER! I love it so much! Now we need to do the bed that matches Smiley

That's gorgeous. I love that with just a change of color, knobs and handles you were able to make it into a piece that looks so great and modern.
