This is in the process of being brought back to use. I will either make it into a bathroom sink or just leave it as it is but painted or put Bri Wax on it. Their were knobs but some were missing. The cost was 5.00!
Here is the inside of the Bi-centinial dresser drawer. All of the paper in the drawers are in perfect conditon and are original to the dresser from factory
Here is the first antique door cabinet that my husband did. He has improved on them since the first one. We had it in a craft fair in MO. It did sell right away.
I got this for 5.00 too. The leather on the top was damaged so I rubbed vasoline on the gold trim and painted it black. Cant tell the damage now. I use it in my bathroom.

Check out "My Junk" From Green to Dream and see what your dresser could look like with a little love. I too had missing knobs, so I replaced with crackled glass knobs. And just sold the dresser!

The antique door cabinet is such a great idea - I have one here that I love an have been saving for an idea like this, so I think that I will borrow your idea. Now to get rid of all this snow so that we can work in the garage! Thanks for sharing!
