Turn a plain Jane dresser into an apothecary chest. Once all your friends know that you made it, they will want one too!
I had this old dresser standing in the basement waiting out there in the dark for a revival. However, I had no idea how to make it happen. So…
I went to Pinterest and found a few ideas, but I had no skill or previous experience to tackle the makeovers I liked best. Instead, I searched for classes where I could learn the skills I needed to actually make my dream come true. Luckily, I found Barb Blair
in this video:
She has a few classes that are great for anyone who would like to turn an old beast into a glorious beauty! I started with a furniture refinishing class, which covers stuff like sanding and prepping
, then a second class about the painting basics
. I was so excited!!! It was the perfect way to learn the skills I needed. Afterward, I felt ready to start my project.
Step 1: Begin by removing all of the hardware from the dresser then filling the holes with wood filler
