Antique Dresser #2 {this week}

This is the last of the pieces I picked up about a month ago.  I absolutely adore everything this beauty has going on.  It needed some work though.  Parts fell off, parts were falling off, and parts were a little wonky (does anyone else use that word??).  Oh, and it was full of nasty things like mouse droppings and spider eggs!  My diligent and oh-so-patient hubby hauled it to our shop for me and fixed it up and I gave it a good cleaning.  Now it's better than it ever was before!  

My client claimed it and said it was for her son so it received a modern update.  I think "he's" pretty sharp now! 



I actually like this stage.  I love seeing a piece at its ugliest because it makes me appreciate the after that much more. :)


This one I was feeling in black! So glad that's what she chose! 

I actually really like these simple knobs and I figured no boy wanted anything "cute"! ;)

It's just loaded with details and this is my favorite one!

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!  It's another softball tourny for us!
