Pinterest Inspired – Laminate Wood Dresser Repurposed Into Entertainment Center

This was actually the first project I did from my collection of “To Do’s” saved on Pinterest. This dresser was at least 20 years old – had an ugly, I mean REALLY UGLY mirror on it and was actually being used as a catch-all in our garage. Once I cleaned off the dust and cobwebs, I used a very strong cleaning solution to cut through all the grime that had built up on it. After I washed the entire piece down, I let it dry overnight. Once thoroughly dry, I began to break it down, bust apart the drawers so I could salvage any material I could to use in another way on the finished product. I then applied a coat of primer paint, I prefer Kilz and let that dry overnight. In the meantime, I did a few searches online for distressed paint samples. That’s where I found the perfect sample. A quick trip to The Home Depot to collect my paint and I was ready. Here is what the piece looked like before old sauder dresser before (1) The tearing-down process: old sauder dresser before (2) And, the finished product: ugly old dresser to entertainment center - after  What projects have you done that were inspired by Pinterest?
