I picked up a dresser a few weeks ago and it wasn’t until I got it home and started sanding that I realized what it was.
Oak. With issues.
Cracks along the top edge meant that refinishing wouldn’t look great. In my experience wood filler and refinishing don’t work well. So I called an older friend who has performed miracles on furniture for quite some time. I think I was asking her “permission” to paint oak. Egads. After all, I don’t want to be on the FBI’s “10 Most Wanted “ list.
Long story short……here it is in all it’s glory.
I still question whether it’s legal to paint oak so I’m looking over my shoulder for the men in suits.
