My girlfriend tapped into my love of restoring and painting furniture, and asked if I would help makeover a bedroom suite of furniture that she had. Gladly, I obliged. 
She had a love for my Drab to Fab table and wanted to do everything in the ASCP Old White .
 She was a beauty in her time, but it was time for some serious updating.
First thing was to wipe down all the furniture as it had been stored for quite a while. I removed all of the original hardware.  I started with the drawers first and applied two coats of paint. Then, I used medium grit sandblock and distressed the edges.
For the dresser, I applied two coats of paint. I distressed all of the edges with my sand block and applied wax to the top and sides of the dresser.

Since my hand surgery a few weeks ago, I have learned how to do a lot, including painting, sanding and waxing with my left hand.  In this photo, I still had the stitches in my right hand. Not bad for a lefty.

Now it was time to put the hardware back on, problem was some of the hardware was missing ( I think my dog ate it- seriously!) This was the original hardware that I painted a satin nickel finish before I realized some of the pulls were missing.

So off to Lowes to find replacements. Convincing my friend that the pulls were a little outdated anyways, I chose some satin nickel knobs and pulls that I thought would work well with the style of her bedroom.
  No more 1970's look for her. I'd say she's quite the trend setter.
And remember the night stand before I started the project

Well, he ain't looking so bad either!
