Here are the cases and drawers sanded and before priming. Please don't mind the rest of the junk in my garage!
The After - I decided to prime the inside of the drawers instead of polying them. The wood is just ugly and painting will hide all of that. Before I paint the final color I will need to fix up the side bottoms of the small piece. It is made of plywood and over the years from it being dragged some of the outside layers have chipped off (I will post a picture tomorrow). I have some baseboard/skirting so I will cut a piece for each side and it will look like trim. I plan on adding longer handles at each side so the dresser can be lifted up when moved. The handles will also be a place where something could be hung.
