Dresser: Trash to Treasure!!

I got this dresser for $2.   It was in decent shape, but was a total eye sore!!  OUCH!
I was inspired by this anthropologie piece.  Amy and I are on a numbers kick too.

The drawers all worked, but they just needed some lovin!!
They were also missing some hardware.  I just used some old cabinet door
handles I had and painted them too.

I painted it white. 
I also covered the top with vintage race car wrapping paper. I then topped it with 
Pour-On Epoxy Finish Is Equal To 60 Coats Of Varnish And Provides A Gorgeous High Gloss Appearance like it did HERE and HERE.  I created my own 1/8 in lip when I added the trim to the top
to hold the epoxy.  I put a strip of masking tape on the back to hold it in as well.

I added a beautiful piece of trim that I got at a yard sale for $1 to the top and bottom. 
It also covered the missing veneer at the bottom too! 

I also thought the numbers were appropriate with the race car theme going too.

I will be listing on craigslist later today.
