Not the good old fashion taking clothes off, but the practice of using harsh chemicals to remove paint and other finishes from wood.
This is what I am stripping.
I bought it off of craigslist and am hoping to bring it back to life (i'm currently working on the drawer that is missing.
However, I need some help. That's where you fit in. I need suggestions concerning the following questions.
I can easily open the drawer by slipping my fingers under each drawer and pulling. I believe this is they way the dresser was originally designed.
QUESTION 1: Should I put a drawer pull (as shown on the bottom two drawers) for decoration purposes?
I know the dresser is white now, and I enjoy color- so the general idea is, oh, paint it a fun color. However...I am actually thinking about painting it a different color of white because it will blend with my closet which is like this closet from Ikea but has legs (another craigslist find).
QUESTION 2. Is white a good idea, or should I go with a different color or combination of colors, like charcoal blue, light blue, and/or silver (if I do go with a color it will likely be blue because it goes well with the blue that is in our beautifully made quilt).
QUESTION 3. Should I put new silver legs to give it a modern feel(if I can figure out how)?
Please, please comment. And if you need extra detail, I promise to post the answers. NOTE: Any suggestion may or may not be considered.
