re-vamped dresser-Tim Style

Here is my new dresser to store a lot of my Close To My Heart products in. I started with a $10 dresser I got at a garage sale last year and put in garage and left it there with big plans in my head. LOL Haven't we all done that! Anyway it was that shiny sticker finish with wood-grain pattern on it but nice and solid piece. I used a good primer on it and then painted it black satin for a washable surface. It took several coats to cover without streaking but got it done. i used the Mod-
Podge made for fabric and brushed it on one drawer at a time and then laid the fabric on and tucked around the corners carefully. Once dry, I put the hardware back on with was shiny gold. Didn't like that at all, so off it came again and I sprayed them black. Much better! Love how it turned out!
