Step 1: Find A Cool Dresser

My wife's grandparents gave us a really cool old dresser that has been in the family since the 1930's.

However this dresser was looking pretty rough after spending years in storage.

Great instructable! Got an old 60's dresser dresser that used to be in the barracks of a military installation. Gave it some new life! The contrast of wood to white is amazing! Thanks for such a great idea! See the before and after images!

Very nice work. I like the contrast between painted and stained wood. You guys will enjoy that for the rest of your lives.

Were you able to keep that original label? That's a neat thing to keep on there even if it's not in perfect shape.
