Yep….what was I thinking? It was 7 months pregnant in the South during the summer and decided I was going to tackle this impossible project…because….Pinterest. A few years ago I went through this really annoying and highly expensive Pinterest phase. I’m out of it now and still own tons of wood glue, spray enamel and filler to prove it. Many of my projects were successful (at least to me) but my biggest undertaking had to be this dang dresser that I was determined to refinish before my daughter was born.
I completed it and almost sent myself into labor several times while doing so. I’m sure there was a reason I was so hellbent on doing this, but years later the only thing I remember is my pregnant self, dragging this solid wood dresser through the house trying to get it outside. And subsequently using every swear word I could think of when I couldn’t get it through the door.
