Craigslist Retro Dresser

This dresser is wants to be treated to a fun new green coat. Along with a taller sister, the pair is $50 somewhere near Portola Valley.

I’m supposed to be giving a furniture refinishing tutorial to a DIY group I belong to. If this were more local, it would have made a great demo project. Lots of straight lines, very little intricate detail, easy to sand down, but not at all boring. Too bad gas is $4 a gallon!

Someone already had a similar idea, and look what they’re charging for it – $500, without even a new paint job. You can do better!
