This armoire/dresser was a bit sad when I picked it up a couple weeks ago. It was covered in stickers, missing some hardware and one of the drawer slides was broken. I cleaned it up, fixed the slide and purchased some new hardware at the Habitat for Humanity store. I painted it red, distressed it and than rubbed it with burnt umber. I am really happy with the results!
