A very good friend of mine is moving off the island and gave me two dressers. One of them she had painted sea creatures all over it with acrylic paint, for her sons bedroom. This dresser, I wanted to use in my craft room, so the paint didn't bother me too much. In order to "fit" into the craft room, the dresser needed a Beatles makeover.
I started by taking all the hardware off, and went to work washing, scraping and sanding as much of the paint off I could.
Some of the paint was very stubborn. It was ok though because most of it was getting covered.
