This dresser was inspired by this picture from Pinterest.
I just loved the triple red stripes. They just spoke to me.
I love finding beauty in simple things.
Here was what the dresser looked like before
except the sides were covered in warped veneer.
I scraped away what was bubbled up and,
then simply nailed thin 1/4 in plywood over the top.
I used good old frog tape for my stripes on each drawer.
I wanted to add a little character to the top so I
did contrasting stripes. I had intended on painting the stripes red, but
once I took off the tape I just loved the wood peaking through.
I LOVE how it turned out. I changed out the knobs to
some metal oil rubbed bronze for the final touch.
This piece is off to our church fundraiser.
I wanted it to appeal to a broad audience so that is another reason I
left the wood tones instead of the red.
