so, i was driving down the road one day when i saw this dresser sitting on the curb with a "free" sign on it.
i figured, with ten people, we could always use another dresser and well...free is free
provided it's not in too terrible of a shape.
we scooped it up and took it home.
i stripped it and sanded it
took all the old ugly hardware off of it
and then painted it black
i bought new hardware for the drawers and a knob for the cabinet.
however, i had a heck of a time finding hinges for the cabinet door.
they were a specific type and they only came in a few colors.
so i ended up buying some chrome spray paint and painted the old ones.
put it together and it came out rather nicely, i think
for a free curbside treasure.
i spent $22 for the hardware and $4 on the spray paint
total cost 26 bucks.
not too shabby, eh?
i think this old thing still has a long life ahead of it....i love how it turned out.
