Then I thought this would be a good a project to show before and after pictures, so I took the drawer back inside and snapped some pictures before I started to sand again. Here's some pictures for your viewing pleasure :))
Kind of a side view, you can see the chippy paint.
Close up of the work in progress, applique is completely gone!, four more to go.
Missing drawer knobs which can be easily replaced, how about some glass knobs??
Kinda threw this picture in for fun, it sits on top of the dresser.
Ok, I need some opinions from all you creative people. I haven't decided what color to paint this darling dresser, creamy white, robin's egg blue, aqua color, some other color??
I was thinking about lining the drawers with some french pages and maybe doing a little antiquing to them ,then applying a thin coat of mod podge to hold the the pages in place.
Don't be shy about leaving a comment, I'm off to do some sanding:))
