Revising My Old Berkey and Gay Chest

Some of you may remember this  $50.00 dresser from a 2010 post

 At the time I decided to leave it the way it was because I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with it.

So I finally decided to do something with it.

I started peeling off this plastic laminate on the top and on the bottom where the dresser was damaged. I used a scraper.

More peeling
After the peeling I applied one coat of primer all over.
Then I used a semi gloss paint.
I really love the light and dark shadows.

  1. I love what you did to the "found dresser"! It's amazing the transformation....I'm with you on your paint choice! Love your blog....hugs, Pam

  2. Very pretty! Sometimes it pays to wait before taking on a project if you're not sure which direction you want to go with it. I like to wait awhile myself {as long as the item is not taking up space that we need to walk around it!}. I just got a little table that I'm kicking around three different ideas for.
