I dedicated a couple of hours to my Brasilia triple dresser yesterday afternoon. It was a warm but windy day. It seemed right.
Here are the dreadful before photos of the dresser and 2 night stands:
I'm just glad it was only 3 drawers painted black. The seller planned to paint the entire dresser. It's also spray paint which is hard to get off and out of the wood grain. Ugh.
Yeah, it needs some love.
The two night stands have been sprayed to death. Don't worry little friends, I'll bring you back.
Stripping, stripping away. Not fun. Trying to think of other things while I strip this puppy. Think happy thoughts, think happy thoughts.
And a couple of hours and many, many sanding pads later, we have a near naked Brasilia dresser! Looks strange right?
This afternoon I'll finish the curve door, the legs and the right side then it will be ready for detailing and a coat of pre-stain.
It actually was not as bad as I was expecting. It must be because I love the line so much and am so happy to have my very own piece.
I hope to have the dresser complete by Sunday. Keep you posted! The night stands might have to wait. I'm not looking forward to stripping them. That's the worst part.
