unfortunately, one piece is going up the street when finished. The veneer was peeling horribly. I have never taken veneer off before. I knew I needed heat, and I thought steam might work better. I have an old clothes iron in my cupboard collecting dust, so I tried it. Sitting in my living room I used the iron and a metal scraper and removed the veneer from 2 of the drawers.
So we picked the stain Zarrs Rosewood. Here's what it looks like with 2 coats of stain. Just have to get some cool knobs from Hobby Lobby! There is a new shopping area near us that put a Hobby Lobby in. I could spend hours in there!
Here is the tall dresser painted. It's now in my son's room, couldn't get a good picture with all his stuff laying around, but it gives you an idea!
And while I was at it, this other dresser was spray painted primary red, blue and yellow (it was in my son's room but took up too much space). I couldn't sell it in primary colors, so I fixed it up, and a woman purchased it to use as a tv stand as well.
