Before and after antique oak dresser. This guy was really banged up and took a lot of elbow grease to get the super old paint off. I probably would have just left the natural wood and re-stained it with wood stain, but the blue paint was really stuck in the grooves and I couldn't get it out all the way unfortunately. But, I think the aged, chipped paint look is really nice too. It's always a tough decision to leave a piece with it's natural wood, or paint it. I love both.
after: (with most of the paint off and re-stained)
after: (final product)
