Name: Marissa
Location: Chicago
Time: One Saturday and a few more hours follow up
Cost: $60.

Marissa modernized her dresser with a dark finish and new hardware. One Saturday = New Dresser! All the pics, tools, how-to and VOTING below...


Tell us the tools and resources you used for the project:
I used two kinds of sand paper, a fine grain for before staining and then an ultra fine grain for between coats. For the stain I used a wood finish (ebony) by Minwax that claims it "Penetrates, Stains and Seals." Finally I bought pulls for the drawers at Home Depot.


Share step by step instructions for how you completed the project:

1. Remove old pulls.
2. Sand dresser.
3. Stain dresser, first time.
4. Sand again.
5. Stain again.
6. Screw in new hardware.
7. Fill with belongings and enjoy!
