The finish was chipped and gouged all over and there were various parts that were either loose, broken, or missing. But the dresser case was well-built, as were the nice dovetailed drawer boxes, so I thought it was a great candidate for a makeover.
My goals with this dresser were to: 1) restore it to its original functionality, and 2) make it unique and much more awesome.
I'm happy with how it turned out. Thanks for taking a look.
Step 1: Drawer fronts with character
The flat black handles were chosen because they were simple and inconspicuous, and they allowed the colorful drawer fronts get all the attention. I think they fit the piece perfectly.
