We started on a couple of new projects today. They are going to be in the works for a long time, mostly because we are still working on getting settled into our new house.
One of them is this old mid-century modern dresser that was passed down to me from my great grand mother.
I just removed a couple of the drawers that are a little worse for ware.
Used a hole saw to cut a few holes for components in the backer board. Or let Mr. Smith do so, since hole saws terrify me after my father almost lost a finger to one.
I plan on painting the top, sides, and bottom boards, as well as the vertical support in the middle. Then I’ll refinish the drawer fronts and feet and stain them a darker wood color to match the other furniture in the house. Im still not sure what color I’ll paint the exterior. I might go with the same TARDIS blue the side table is. What do you think?
I’ll save the other project we started on for a later post. It’s going to be quite a doosie in the long run.
