Rose Dresser

This is another dresser I found on, of course, Craigslist. I love craigslist post without pictures attached.. its like a game to me. I always can't wait for the owner to email/text me a picture of there secret treasure. This is one that didn't have an original picture but as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted it. 

1. We gave the whole thing a good sanding (we started to sand it before I took a picture.. but to begin with the top was painted).

2. We decided to stain the top because two toned dressers are my favorite so why not? 
-We used Miniwax Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner 
-And stained Miniwax Provincial color

3. We chose Benjamin Moore Covington Blue (which we also used on this dresser here...

4. We ended up purchasing new knobs for the dresser at Hobby Lobby during there extra 50% off sale. The 'before' knobs were so strange... metallic arrow heads? not what we were wanting!

After about 3 coats of paint and stain it was ready. We posted it on Craigslist and had it sold within 4 days to a sweet young girl that just move to NM... I hope she likes it as much as I did!

As the purchaser of the dresser I have to say that I love it! The color was such a great choice and the updated knobs are beautiful. You've inspired me to restore a few things in my home now. Thanks!
