Pink Chiffon Dreams Chest

Ah, man. One of my all time favorite pieces! This dresser was part of a set I found at a local flea market. I fell in love instantly! I asked about the set and the owner told me she'd discount it since it had been sitting there for a while and both pieces had extensive damage. In addition to the top being separated, carvings were missing and there was veneer damage from top to bottom. Veneer damage scares people but I knew I could fix it up with a little Bondo and a lot of TLC! My dear friend purchased the tall chest and chose this lovely shade of pink. You simply must see the before pics and all the close ups! The juicy details and step by step pics on the repair are on the blog.
Jewelry is perfect for accenting furniture!

    Awesome! I love how you used bondo to repair the broken/peeling veneer. I have one side of an antique vanity that I use in my bathroom for extra storage. You have inspired me to give it new life!
