My dear friend Claudia has bought her first house and is moving in next week! I am so incredibly excited for her and I told her that I must help her with some furniture pieces (I mean, I didn’t give her much choice). So I searched and searched for a dresser that fits her criteria. She was looking for something with deep drawers and that was my main priority. After sending about a million emails to Claudia, she found one that she really liked. She went to check it out and ended up buying it!!! It did have a few problems that I assured her we could fix. The drawer bottoms were all messed up and the surface was stained. Carl and I got out some trusty tools, built her some bottoms and sanded that sucker down. These old pieces have a different finish than the newer ones, and that stuff does not want to come off. Finally, we got it all off and stained it a similar color to what it came to me. The hardware is new but we tried to stay true to the time and not go with anything too flashy. It hasn’t been poly’ed yet but when it does I will be sure to post a picture. Until then, these are some pictures of the process. Congratulations Claudia and thank you for being such an amazing friend and one of my biggest supporters. You are the best!
