Make it new!

Problem: We need a dresser for the nursery and I don't want to spend $75 + for a new one. Also I want it to match what we currently have on hand.

Solution: Take my husband's old dresser (manufactured back in 1982) and make it new by sanding off all of the old finish (by hand) and painting it with VOC free paint.

Since I was so jazzed to get this done I forgot to take a picture of the main dresser before we sanded off the finish.  So to give you an idea of what the finish looked like before here is a picture of two unsanded drawers.

When we finish sanding and painting everything I will post another picture.
