This was a fun experience for the most part. After at least 3 trips to Loew's for paint, endless reading of other blogs for their ideas and tips, a new hand held sander ( a present for me from me ), lots of Advil....OH! and throw in a trip to the doctor for a tetnus shot because I drove a screwdriver into my other hand when I couldn't pry a paint can open, it's all done. I decided not to add up the $$ signs. I probably could have bought a new dresser but it wouldn't have entertained me for so long!!
