Over the years I have always loved redoing furniture. However, I never really had a reason for a new dresser because I just kept reincarnating the 12 drawer gentlemen's chest I begged for from the Mill Store when I was 13. It has been a country pine, shabby chic white, campy green, and finally Benjamin Moore Silver Fox.
Fast-forward to early this year when I finally wanted to downsize and let it go to a nice home. (Mill store is going out of business, so maybe my circa 1990's dresser will become a collectible for the new owner!) I have since, found, refinished, and sold 5 bureaus!
