As I’ve slowly been dabbling in the world of furniture rehab the last year, I’ve learned quite a bit. Namely, that restoring wood furniture takes time and patience. I understand why people choose to go the painted furniture route because, frankly, it’s a lot easier!
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.
Earlier this spring I posted another dresser that I was tackling – my mom’s dresser that she had when she was a kid.
I’ve inherited another family dresser!
Last month I posted on some cabinet knobs that I was debating over for a dresser I was refinishing.
In fact, it it the first piece of furniture I have ever truly refinished!
I’ve finished raw wood and painted over old finishes, but I’ve never sanded a piece of furniture down to it’s raw state.
I am currently in the middle of refinishing my first pieces of furniture – hardcore!
I have finished raw furniture and have repainted furniture, but I have never taken a piece and fully sanded it down before – until now.
I got an old dresser from my grandparents in the fall and it has been sitting in our sunroom waiting to be brought back to life. I’ll post about that whole process later, because right now I’m looking at knobs!
