Do you have an orange dresser that just screams “construction work ahead”? Would you like to soften that hi-vis glow into a gentler more natural-looking wood tone? Let’s learn how to stain wood to create a natural wood look, with some beautiful unexpected details.
I found this dresser through Craigslist. It had a very sad story. The owner’s fiance had passed away and she was selling everything to move away from the area. She had started working on this piece but wasn’t able to finish it. I was honored to pick up where she had left off and see if I could give this dresser a chance at a new look. I really liked the curved corners and simple style. So, with the understanding of how to refinish a dresser, I got started on the piece.
