Do It Yourself (DIY) Dresser Repair

My neighbor’s elderly mother had given us her old furniture last year.  The furniture was gorgeous; it was high quality, durable, and had that certain old-fashioned flair that I love oh so much.  The dark stain was out of date, however, and it definitely had its fair share of nicks and bruises.

I started researching DIY projects and ideas.  So, one weekend, I sanded, painted, and distressed one of the smaller dressers that she’d given to us.  Then, I did the same to the two end tables.  They looked gorgeous and I was very impressed with myself, but there was still the large dresser that I needed to accomplish.  My procrastination set in, and the large, bruised, nicked, yet beautifully designed dresser sat in the corner of the bedroom unloved and neglected – until of course, this weekend, when I poured all of my energy into giving my dresser what it deserved, a much needed makeover!  Not only did it come out better than all of the other pieces, but it ties the whole room together and adds an extra touch of serenity.
