When the counselor brought home this dresser for $60, I was a bit skeptical.
Only the middle drawers came out (thanks to the handy work of someone who permanently drilled them in place), and the wood is that lovely 70’s laminate. I had my work cut out for me, starting with hosing it down.
I let it dry in the sun, then start on some sanding to smooth things out. Next, it was time to remove the red velvet in the three middle drawers.
The fabric was easy enough to remove,
but what should I replace it with?
I wanted to stay neutral, but still artistic. My neighbor the caterer has had a lot of success using vintage sheet music as lining in old furniture pieces.
It’s an easy way to decorate with modge podge.
I also painted the fixtures silver. Here’s the finished product.
