A little elbow grease and voila! SOLD

I found this dresser at a quaint little shop in Brittania Village. It was definitely a real mess but I liked the bones of it and knew I could work a little magic on it.

blue dresserFirst off I should apologize for the quality of the pictures, for some reason my SD card seems to be acting up every so often and the pictures end up looking like they were pieced together.

You can see for yourself that this dresser needed a bit of work.  Whatever paint had been used was tacking and bumpy.  Not even to mention that the paint job was just a tad messy…oh well
