IT'S DONE!!!!!

So I finished it! This was the big project that I started at the beginning of the summer. Let me give you some background. I had this vision of what I wanted for a TV console. Since my front room isn't the biggest, I didn't want something massive that takes up the whole wall. Instead, I wanted to re-do an old, wood dresser and put my stamp all over it. I got busy hitting the D.I. and getting on KSL almost everyday until I found a steal.... and boy did I find one. I found an ad on KSL for a Solid Wood Dresser that had Nine drawers. The ad was priced at $80 which was a lot more than I wanted to spend but I LOVED the look of the dresser so I gave the woman a call. She said she had been trying to sell the thing for months now but no one came buy to look at it when they said they would. She offered it to me for $50 and threw in a matching night stand. Yup... I snagged a deal! They are both massive, heavy pieces of furniture and they are SOLID WOOD! I love that part. So my parents lent me their garage and my mom watched Gabers while I got to work on it.
Here is the Before:


And here is the After:



I love how it turned out. It is just what I pictured it to be. All it needs now is a TV..... dallas is working on this one. This little project was quite time consuming but worth every minute!! What shall I work on next??? Hmmmmmm???
