Crazy Sexy Cool Dresser Re-Do


This has to be the best furniture restore I've seen all year: http://hardscrabblehome.blogspot.com/2013/05/reclaimed-dresser-to-industrial.html

Stephanie found the dresser whilst dumpster diving and set about to restoring. Her blog says "We used many tools in fabricating this piece, drill press, grinder, sander, saws, and even a chain. You imagine it, well, we probably used it."

I asked what the chain was used for and she responded "Hi Anny, we used the chain to bang it up and distress it. We wanted it to look like it had lived a long life and had the scars to prove it. lol You can see in the chain picture the marks it left."

When I restore furniture I use paintbrushes and if feeling especially feisty - sand paper.
