From Old to New!

I love antique vintage style furniture so for a while I have been nagging my parents for an antique style white dresser. We looked online and they were all quite pricey so we decided to buy a second hand one off ebay and my dad will refurbish it as he loves that kind of stuff.

This solid wood old cracked surface antique dresser off ebay cost £65. My dad took it apart, sanded it down, filled the crack, polished the handle, primed and then painted it a Parisian white. Et voila! my beautiful dresser.
old and retired!

All done and drying in the garage!

This is what it looks like completed, in my room, I really love it and would now sell on eBay for around £150-£200! It just goes to show what a little elbow grease can do!
