Good Monday Morning my BEAUTIES!
I hope the weekend was good to you.
We had a busy one, of course!
Whats new?
Well I did have time to get a couple projects done
so I thought I would show you.

Remember this OLE THING?
I had gotten it at the VERY BEGINNING of summer.
When we were camping...:)
It had to ride home in the camper......Hubby was thrilled....LOL
He really should have been since it was going to be his.
I have been on a mission to get rid of any particle board type of furniture in the house
and he had a sauder dresser that we had bought when we first bought our house.
THIS was its replacement.
$12 at a garage sale! How could I say no.

I finally got around to it and started by completely sanding the top down using my orbital sander to the bare wood.
I wanted to keep it masculine so I thought I would keeps some of the wood showing (you know to MAN it up..:))

I then painted everything else with CeCe Caldwells Simple White.
It was perfect for this dresser.

I stained the top a deep espresso brown

 When it was dry I waxed and distressed the whole thing.

I even got to move some of the handles around to keep those masculine looking pulls.
I then found two small brass pulls for the two top small drawers.

Hubby is more than Happy now. He loves his new to him dresser.
I don't know why he never believes me in the first place. LOL
I hope you enjoyed this post; and I hope you have a
