Furniture Refinish Part 2


Well these were a pain in the BLEEP but I am very proud and happy with the way they turned out.
Lets start with the dresser


BEFORE: 

This was in bad need of a re-do you can see it here but the finished looked like mustard was smeared all over it.  Then to top it off white spray paint was sprayed on the top and spattered all over the mirror.  It took many scrapings and tedious sanding but I got the top nice and smooth.





AFTER:

I wish the lighting was better, but this is a nice warm pink.  IT is hard to find a warm soft pink but I did it and I am very pleased with it.  The white spray paint came off the mirror with a razor blade and my needle work looks great above it.  The white frame (and the gold one you can see reflected in the dresser mirror) is next to be re-finished.







Now onto the Desk and Hutch, I drove by this on the side of the road on my way to take Trinity to Gymnastics.  I liked the feminine shape.



BEFORE:

My Son thought I was crazy when I asked him to help me load this on the truck.  But it had nice lines and was in good shape.  Not as well made ad I would have liked but I could make this work.










AFTER:

As you can see it fits in perfectly in my girly Rose room.  I decided to make this a creamy antique white, not wanting to go pink and make everything too matchy, matchy.  I am on the hunt for drawer pulls.  Originally on the hutch drawers were two nobs and plastic pulls on the desk drawers.  I didn't like them at all.  The trouble is the holes on the hutch are closer than the drawers on the desk.  I also need to raise the hutch as it is too low for a computer.  I have an idea in mind that I think will look great.
