Before and After Rescued Dresser Makeover

Welcome back my Beauties!
I am so excited to show you this latest makeover!
A few months ago my nephew texted me to tell me there was a couple of dressers adjacent to a dumpster.
He sent me a pick and told me if I wanted them I had better grab them quick.
He told me they were damaged but I didn't care.
I have put a lot of dressers back together so I wasn't scared.

When we got them home I could better inspect the damage.
Most of it was water damage to the top.
The veneer was a total loss.
But like I said. I haven't walked away from a dumpster dresser makeover yet, and I wasn't going to start today.
So I got my handy dandy scrapper and got as much of the veneer off as I could. 
Then it was time for the big guns.

I used my Belt Sander to take down all the damaged veneer I couldn't scrape off.

This is what it looked like after about 15 minutes with the belt sander.
Once I got it smooth and wiped off all the dust with some tac cloth
I was ready to stain.

I stained the top with some Ipswich Pine Stain
and when that was dry I used Wipe on Poly


Once that was done it was time to pretty up the base.
I wiped it all down and removed the hardware.

I am in LOVE with the "Handsome" colour by Velvet Finishes and I knew it would be the perfect color for this dresser.
I gave it two coats and it was ready to go.

I was THRILLED with how it turned out.
I didn't even have to do anything to the hardware.
Once the dresser was pretty again the hardware really showed off the style of the piece.

As usual I want to keep it so I know I have to get it out of my house before I start planning a place for it.
