Empire Dresser in White Raisin

When I first started blogging about furniture I always showed a before and after picture. 
Recently it's just been an after shot of a pretty piece of furniture. 

I feel this piece needs a before and after so you can see how far it has come!

There was a top and a complete set of drawers but the top was bowed beyond repair and all of the veneer needed to be removed too. 
 My husband made a new top for this dresser and replaced the right leg that had fallen off.
I decided to line the drawers with a funky ikat fabric because the bottoms of the drawers were pretty worn and overall gross. 

Overall, the dresser turned out awesome considering the original condition. 

The hardware and fabric came from Hobby Lobby
the color is White Raisin by Sherwin Williams. 
The top was stained in dark walnut.
