SECOND CHANCE With this Vintage dresser



This was one of those dressers that you are lucky to have the second chance to purchase. I spent the weekend at the lake  and upon returning to the my local thrift store ,the dresser was still there. The dresser had a "broken mirror" frame attached , so I guess Most would not purchase.  Lucky for me !!

I did miss out on a wonderful antique dresser , that was purchased . Lesson learned , most time you never get a second chance to purchase with thrifting !!


Here he is in his old Glory !! Well abused or should I say LOVED ??


2 coats of OLD WHITE ASCP 


2 coasts of DUCK EGG ASCP
SANDED OUT the Diamond original detail 


DRAWER PULLS - spray painted gloss white TREMCLAD 


Sanded , distressed and ASCP Clear wax 


A SECOND CHANCE for me and this dresser!!

I think everything wrote made a lot of sense. But, consider this, suppose you added a little information?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added something that makes people desire more? I mean "SECOND CHANCE With this Vintage dresser" is kinda boring. You ought to glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they create article headlines to
grab viewers to click. You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers
interested about what you've written. In my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.
