Dresser Redo #2

I thought I would joint Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch. Check out the other makeovers here.

Sometime last spring I was perusing Craigslist and found this dresser for sale for $50.  Son and I got in the Jeep and drove down to look at it and bought it.  It is made of wood but unfortunately the side panels are nothing but 1/4 inch panels.
It has a cool style, however, so I decided to refinish it.  I didn't like the little lion head pulls though so I did change those out.

The top needed a little sanding.

Here it is finished.  I put basic little knobs on it and then lined the drawers with black and white Contact paper.  They smelled a little funky: part old folks and part barn.
I used the Heirloom Lace by Glidden.  I've used it on three pieces that are all in my room now.

Now it is in our bedroom for all of Husband's clothing.

These little stars on top are hanging candle holders.  They are from Jordan.  One of these days I want to have them wired to be hanging lamps with light bulbs.  Maybe I should made that a project?

Since one drawer had a corner missing and there were various dings and nicks it was necessary to distress this little beauty.

Soon I will share the entire room redo.  But for now I need to get back to the paint studio (garage) and finish a pair of dining sets.  
Thanks for stopping in.
