This is a small oak dresser I picked up for $25. Should be perfect for storing linens or (fill in bank here:_________________).
Solid Oak with worn finish and missing hardware
Dresser Makeover in Restoration Hardware Style
Original Dresser - yuck! (I hate oak... haha)
I lightly sanded all surfaces, cleaned and primed before applying two coats of Behr Chic Taupe
Painted two coats of Behr Chic Taupe then dry brushed Dutch Boy Rudimentary Beige over that
For the top, I painted two coats of Behr Whiskey Barrel and dry brushed with the same beige as below

I decided to patch over the existing hardware holes and switch to knobs. I set them in place to get a feel for visual placement. There's a good tip on Google that says drawers wider than 18-inches should have two knobs, each placed approximately 1/6 of the drawer width from each end.

Adding some accessories for final staging.
