Before & After: An Old Painted Dresser

First – Happy Saturday! We’ve had several men working on our house for the last two weeks residing our house. (!!) The  old siding was rotted and peeling beyond repair. We also were able to knock out that awkward window in our shower and side right over it! All this to say, they are working right outside of the window I’m sitting in front of and I feel a little rude. So this post will be short today.

Refinishing an old painted dresser

Earlier this spring I posted another dresser that I was tackling – my mom’s dresser that she had when she was a kid.

You can see more of the “before” photos and how I stripped the paint here in this old post.

It took me a long time to refinish this piece because there were many layers of paint, and also needed quite a bit of sanding to take out a lot of dings and scratches.

I am happy to say that it has spent the last month happily living in my bedroom!!

Today I’ll share an “after” and I’ll be back to explain the sanding and pre-staining process I tried this time around.
