BLACK AND WHITE AND RIDICULOUSLY GORGEOUS - 5 drawer cabinet


First things first, I needed to remove those handle things
and vacuum out the unwanted inhabitants.


While stripping all the old paint it was obvious the
 top couldn't be salvaged.


I replace the top with a surface *pull-out* from our
 old solid oak desk cut to fit.


I had to mend or rebuild every
 drawer gluing, clamping, and nailing


Step ... #112 so far, I added vintage legs all around.


Then to priming and confirmed the great looking handles
I thought would work, actually work well.

An embossed print was added to the
drawer fronts then painted.


All 5 drawers got lined with designer print fabric.

  12. I think this is the second time I have seen someone add feet/legs to a dresser. Is it hard to do and how do you handle attaching them to the dresser?
    I love the look of this dresser, very original.

    Great job! How did you do the embossing, if I may ask?

  15. Wow, you really know what you're doing. Keep it up. We can all learn from you! Is the embossing a paper sheet, metal, wood, or what?
