Cute Yellow Dresser re-do

I found this little dresser at an estate sale for only $15. The price was right because of how beat up it was, but it’s bones were good. I loved the no frills, simplicity of it. It was real, solid wood with sturdy dove-tail joins. I did have to wood glue one or two spots, but nothing major.

It improved immensely after a quick sanding and only one coat of paint, but there were a few nicks in the top.Β  I smoothed those out before the last two coats.

After the last coat of paint, two quick coats of polycrylic and drying over night, it was ready to go! I gave this one to a friend of mine and she sent me a few pictures once it was set up.

She loves it, so I love it. This is also the color I used on the chalkboard. It’s just such a happy, cozy color. Let me know how you like it!
