A Dresser In Need

It doesn’t look like much does it?

Judging by the stickers and doodles scratched into the wood, I’m assuming this dresser spent some time in a child’s bedroom.  I wasn’t sure if it was worth saving until I took a closer look. Underneath the stickers, stains and scars is some very attractive grain. Also, it’s a nice smaller size which always a plus when it comes time to sell it. I’ve found that most people just don’t have the room or the need for large pieces.

If it looks a little short that’s because somewhere along the line it lost its legs.  I’ll fashion a new set and it will stand tall and proud once again.

Here it is after stripping off the finish with a good dose of Citristrip.

Those are some mean looking scratches across the grain on the top. I won’t be able to completely erase those but hopefully they can at least be lightened a bit.

Stay tuned for more updates!
