Strip!

The Boy’s new room is almost done! He already moved in a little while ago, but he didn’t have a dresser. We acquired a dresser from The Boss’s parents, this one’s been in the family for a while and has had quite a few looks. This year’s look – red.

The most recent look – sponge painted blue and white with gold hardware. According to the date on the back this finish was applied 18 years ago.

Let the paint stripping begin, this took a while.

Aaand done!

It’s got a rough paint texture to it, maybe I should have given it a light sanding before wax coat. Too late, time to stock it with clothes.
