I’ve been working very hard on a Christmas gift for my daughter. Don’t tell her what it is.
She has a chest of drawers, that has been hers since she was about 6 months old. She never liked the color, and as a child covered it with stickers. C.O.V.E.R.E.D.
For her gift, I have refinished it. I wish I had a photo for you, before the stickers came off, but I don’t. Here’s one with most of the stickers removed.
Then I stripped it and sanded it.
And here it is with the darker finish that beloved daughter prefers and some new hardware.
