There is a great little consignment shop on the way home from work called Phantastic Phinds, in Glenside. We’ve gotten many other finds here as well. We picked up this dresser for $90- gotta love a deal! It wasn’t in the best condition, but that doesn’t matter because we were re-doing it anyway!
Step 1: Take off hardware.
Step 2: Sand the ENTIRE piece (you’ll find some good sanders on this website). I’m convinced the best invention in the world was a palm sander and that was super helpful in this step.
The next step was to find feet… that was tricky. We ended up buying cheapies at Lowe’s and made them look more like the piece by adding a thin square between the base of the dresser and the newly bought legs.
Step 3: Add any additional pieces. (see legs)
*After this step you can choose to paint the piece with an oil-based primer to prevent the wood from seeping any sap through the paint. I did not do this step with this particular piece.
