My trusty assistant since my husband was at work!
The finished product in the garage.
The finished product in its home in my front hallway.
I used my Makita power sander to sand the dresser completely then restained it in a toffee stain (Minwax) and finally finished with three coats of matte polyurethane. I had wanted to replace the hardware but thats A LOT of drawer pulls and those things don't come cheap so the originals stayed and I have to say I don't mind them so much. They are brass but they are so aged that the have a more natural tone to them.
