Hello there! I didn't manage to fit in a blog post last week. It was the first week in a while that I wasn't on vacation or didn't have my kids with me so I had some work to do. And work I did. I finished this lovely dresser (which I just sold today!). It's really a gorgeous piece the likes of which I've never seen before. I'm so glad I decided to strip the stain. The before doesn't really show how crummy the stain was.
I considered just painting the whole thing but am so glad I didn't. First off, I couldn't have chosen a better piece to strip. The veneer was in excellent condition so that made it easy. And it was just a flat surface with no recesses or detail to deal with so that was awesome. And it just looks so nice with the white and the cleaned up wood.
