You’ll find that most of my projects start with some sort of inspiration from Pinterest, because that what Pinterest is there for, right? Adam and I got this mid-century modern style dresser for free out of his old rent-house (roommates came and went often, sometimes leaving furniture behind in the dumping ground of the converted garage space). As you can see it’s a little blah and way too orange-y for my tastes, and I wanted to give it a bit of pop.
The only issue was that the top of the dresser has a sheet of laminate fused to it (common in 50s and 60s furniture), which is not something that can be sanded down and re-stained. I’m really loving the character of natural wood these days and I didn’t want to just paint the whole thing.
