The Old is New Again

So I thought I had a picture of the dresser before but haven't found one.    But one of our dressers was in pretty bad shape.  We bought the dresser used 27 years ago when we got married.   The veneer was cracking and coming off the dresser drawers.   I saw a post of Pinterest where they used scrapbook cardstock and Mod Podge.  A light bulb came on and I thought of a K & Co paper stack - Life's Journey I had been hoarding.  :)  I'm sure none of you do that.   I also thought I would paint the drawer handles as they are a black/brown.  Instead I started cleaning them with Brasso.  Took a whole morning but I found out that the handles were actually brass.    Here are the pictures of the finished product.  I added lots of little touches like cutting out flowers, flourishes and butterflies out of the paper.    I used the Storybook cartridge for that.
