Refinishing Particle Board/ Panel Wood

$10
6 Hours
Easy

This dresser has been in my bedroom since I was a child (approximately 24 years.) After recently purchasing my first home I wanted to use as many of the items I currently had as possible and stay within a reasonable budget for decorating. I decided to take this piece with me and perform a total make over.
