I am always on the hunt for dressers and I found this one at the Flea Market. It needed some serious work on the top, but was very solid and well built so I bought it.
When I got it home I got out my scraper and started to chip away at the veneer that was coming off. I have found that for me the best way to remove veneer is with a hammer and a Spackle scraper. I angle the scraper under the veneer and then hit it softly with the hammer. I make sure I really angle the scraper. I had to remove all of the veneer from the top of this piece and it took me awhile, but it was worth it. I next mixed up my home-made chalk paint in Carmel Blue and painted away. The last step was distress the edges and to dark wax the piece.
