Before Pics
As soon as I laid eyes on this dresser I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do with it :)
And couldnt wait...started the same day I bought it tossing all other projects aside...
I sanded the entire dresser

I drew templates on the drawers
I was pretty gung hooo until I had the jigsaw in my had and kept thinking...OMG what if i mess it up....EKKKKK....
I even took the sander to it and started to sand off the template I had just taken the time to make on each of the drawers..... then I thought you will never know if you don't try and of course wondering what the heck I was thinking I never hesitated
I THOUGHT.....BRING IT :)

SOOOO glad I did....LOVE IT!!!!
Made my cuts on the drawers and sanded them down
(not each cut was perfect but the sander took care
of that so.....don't hesitate to try this)

Stood back and thought YAYYYYY
Painted the entire dresser  grey

Made stencil for the numbers on the dresser using my cricut diecut machine and added the numbers

Then I went over the dresser in spots and sanded to make the piece look worn and vintage....rubbed the entire dresser down with stain and paying good attention to the sanded spots especially where the wood was showing.....

TAAA DAAAAA



PFFFFFF....what was I so worried about...silly me
