Karin of Art Is Beauty share this fast and lovely dresser restyle!

She explains her project, "I decided since most [of the dresser's damage] was really surface scratches, I could get away with just a light sanding and then use my General Finishes Java Gel Stain on it to bring out the richness of the wood...
