CL Find - Dresser

I picked up this gorgeous antique dresser I found on Craigslist earlier this week:

I'm a pretty impatient girl.. so, I got started right away!  The top of the dresser had 3 layers of this thin wood stuff that was all peeling up.  So, I started to peel it back by hand, only to find out it wasn't going to cooperate with me very easy.

I got out my "chisel" and hammer, and began to scrape off the old glued on layers

It's coming off pretty good now, and I've started to sand it down.  Man o man, my arms are killing me!

As I keep going, I'll add to this post so you can see the progression.. so excited and giddy to see the final product.. I can't wait till she's done!!


  1. hello there! love the dresser! keep us posted on the redo! could you please email me about the blogger get together? i couldn't find an email for you and wanted to send out a group email to all who are planning to attend.
