Have you ever run across a piece of furniture that is begging for a refresh? This particular dresser was looking quite sad. It had damage to the top, front, and peeling veneer. I can honestly say I feel like that sometimes, do you?  Let me tell you the story of my distressed dresser.

I had to laugh when I first laid eyes on this piece. To me it looked to be foaming out the mouth. hahaha!! See the shaggy veneer, missing trim, mismatched knobs? A hot mess for sure.

What to do?? With a bit of DIY know-how using my method to remove veneer, I was able to give this dresser a fresh start. It is looking better already!
