This is a true rags to riches. This dresser was so broke that the free store for the homeless GAVE  it to me- not a joke! I used to work at the shelter, & the warehouse manager said "gurrrllll, do you want this?" I was planning to take the handles and burn the rest! Ha! My Man Friend said "we can fix that!"

This curvy gal has been painted in a beautiful color called Blue Moon by General Finishes. 

I was drawn to this dresser because of the combination of drawers and doors. It was covered in layers of sloppily applied paint and I originally just planned to refresh the paint. However, as I was prepping and lightly sanding, I noticed these vertical lines on the drawer fronts coming through the paint. After sanding the drawers more heavily, the wood panels were revealed and my vision began to take shape. I started with a couple of fresh coats of Persian Blue Milk paint. I followed that...

The entire piece was topcoated with GF High Performance Topcoat in flat. The result is an updated buffet/...
