Two weeks ago I picked up this vintage dresser that I found on Craigslist. Would you believe it was only $30?
I started out by using a ton of Kilz primer so the old wood would not bleed through. Then it got two coats of Glidden's Antique White paint... finished off with some polyacrylic to protect it. Then I replaced the old metal knobs with adorable glass ones I purchased off eBay.
