Amazing how good those dressers have turned out... I never would have thought about refinishing these dressers, some of them I'd probably toss, yet these look beautiful!

The map looks great on the 2nd dresser, and the starfish for knobs on the 6th is very clever! I've been busy painting walls. After I finish walls I'm moving on to my dining table :)
