This dresser had missing handles and one broken drawer beyond repair. The remaining drawers are dovetailed construction and very strudy. I sanded off most of the white paint to reveal the red underneath it. My husband cut a piece of galvanized metal to fit the space as a shelf and I added rope handles.  It was a fun project to work on.


Pattern or design used: My own design - Barking Dogs Flea Market Style
