One fine day, Jake was at Home Depot picking up some wood glue.
Exciting I know. Don't worry the story gets better. 

While chatting with one of the sales guys, he mentioned what we do and the sales guy said, 
"Well I've got a dresser. It's yours if you come pick it up."

Free. Furniture. 
Yes please!  

She was in bad shape.

She was chippy, but not in a good distressed way. 

So off the top came.
We did it the old fashioned way with a hammer and chisel.   

And oh my goodness she was SO so dirty. 
(Like lots of spider eggs dirty)
Gives me the heebee geebees. 

But here she is now. 

One of my favorite features is the plank top. 
We painted it and then sanded almost all of it back off so it has a slightly weathered look.

The hardware is...well it's rope. 
We tried traditional hardware but it didn't flow with the piece. 
But the rope just WORKS! 

The grain of the wood was too beautiful to paint so we stained it with Minwax Antique Walnut.
The base is painted with Camembert by Behr. 

We took these in Rhett's room and so we used some of his things to stage it.

This is the shifty sailor. His eyes...well they're shifty.

And meet Roy. Rhett carries him around the house by chewing on his nose.  

She's solid wood with 6 deep drawers.
