Beautiful French Dresser

It's finally done!! We found this dresser on Craigslist for a steal!! It had a few minor (or major - however you look at it) boo boos that needed to be fixed. But this one was a beauty and I had to have it!! So we brought it home and got started! If I am completely honest, I have to tell you that Ben did most of the work on this piece. He is REALLY good at this. Who knew??? Anyway, he fixed the broken foot and the broken edge as if he has been doing this for years! I unfortunately, did not take any close up pictures of those areas after he fixed them. But trust me, you could not even tell that they had been broken. Like I said before...he is really good at this! Anyway...then we sanded it down, primed it, and then painted it a warm cream color.
Next came the "roughing up" and staining. We decided to leave the hardware exactly as it was. I loved the rusted grates in the doors!! So pretty!! Anyway, here is the finished product!! I think it turned out great!! And our client was very happy with it too!! That's what really matters!!
