    The dresser turned out fabulous!
    I refinish/paint furniture, and almost every MCM piece is constructed with veneer on the sides, and many times on the top. There were a few high end brands that didn’t do this, but for the most part, this is the standard.

    1. Thank you! I agree, yes they are but I have never seen the particle board in the middle like this. It usually has cheap wood under it.

        I live in Canada, so maybe the Canadian manufacturers were more into particle board/plywood under the veneer, but I see particle board/plywood a lot on pieces here. 🙂 I can’t say that I’ve ever foud a dresser by the big name US or Scandinavian MCM companies here, though. Mostly Canadian manufacturers (when the pieces are marked).

        1. Hmmm that’s so interesting Rebecca.

    Such an informative article! I agreed that at first, we should use a tack cloth to get better finishing for flawless results. By using tack cloth you can easily remove small dust and dirt particles from the surface. Your blog is very well written and all the information provided by you is really very helpful. Thank you for sharing! Keep Posting!

    Stunning and very creative! Another beautiful restoration.

    1. Thanks so much, Heather.

  14. Incroyable, bravo ! Sais-tu où trouver à nouveau ce rouleau cannelé ? Merci à toi.

    1. I’m glad you like it. I bought the fluted wrap at a local store and linked to it in my blog post.

  15. I love this. I am picking up a credenza tomorrow that I want to do this on, but the pole wrap is now almost $70! So, I am looking at various bamboo placements to use. My drawers are not as wide as yours, so I think I will be able to find something that fits. They have a lot of very interesting designs. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Oh wow, the price really went up on the pole wrap then. Good luck!

    I really love the dresser you refurbished! Yes, it is better than your inspiration piece. I just had the same experience with the dresser sides. I have to redo some glides, too. YIKES.

  17. Oh friend this looks incredible!!!!! Fantastic job!!!!

    1. Oh hey, Shavonda! Thanks so much! I’m so glad I finally changed up that dresser.

  18. Wow that is gorgeous, and even better than the West Elm piece. I’m always impressed by your creativity -and your ability to find great pieces to transform!
