Re-Doing the Dresser

February 9, 2009


This is my dresser.  When I bought it for $50.00 at a flea market it was just basic white but the paint was peeling off and I am a compulsive picker.  So, I had to repaint it to keep myself from peeling all the paint off.  I decided I would paint it that lovely orange color, which I thought was terracotta, then wash over it with some watered down yellow paint.  So, it turned out pretty streaky and ugly.  I’ve been living with the ugly dresser for almost 2years now.  I remember that because I started painting the week before I turned in my notice at Freeman. (Life changing moment!)

I’m in the process of stripping all the paint off the dresser now and have to decide what to do with it.  Any suggestions?
