Red & Retro

I picked up these dressers at an auction 10 years ago for $10.  It was before I even knew how to properly paint furniture, but I painted them white for our Master Bedroom in our first house.  Then, I painted them black when I redesigned our master bedroom.

  Then we moved,
and I gave them to my offspring...
...they stayed scratched -
and yucky for 5 years!
(poor kid)
You'd think I could find someone
who can restore furniture!!
 Now they are Retro Red & Chrome (spraypaint)!  Love it!!!!
(& so does the offspring)

Some really cool curves on these - You can't buy curves like that anymore! 

This is really red in person, not orange.
