Pinterest Inspired Dresser

Triple Red Stripes onto some furniture! 
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.
