Well here is my dresser and chest all done…turned out beautiful I think. Remember the pics before with it all sawed in half? I have a pretty handy hubby. Check out the Shadow boxes he made that are on both side of the mirrors and a close up shot. Thanks for looking…hugs…Danette

Hi Danette,

I would say that you have successfully transformed this dresser after nearly cutting it in half. The shadow boxes were a nice use of the “scraps” and compliment the dresser nicely.

Thanks for the post.

Good Job! I really like that offset look of the one in the second picture. A pic of the inside would be nice.

I never have liked painted furniture. The more I see of it and the beautiful job you guys do. I am liking it more and more. It looks so sharp and clean. You did great job on these pieces. Thank you for posting.

God Bless
