Diamond in the Rough

ok, so maybe it's not exactly a diamond but it will be!  I picked this up at Goodwill today for around $20!  It leaves a lot to be desired at the moment, but I'm loving the uniqueness of it.  I think those details are crying out for some glaze!  I'll share the "after" just as soon as I get enough guts to get outside in this freezing weather and paint it!

I'm in love! That is going to be such a beautiful piece. If I lived closer I'd buy it from you (that is if you were selling)! Wish I could find something like this at my local goodwill! Can't wait to see it finished!

Hey, that dresser looks a tad familiar....I originally was going to go the glaze route but with that much detail (see pasted blog post). You may want to do it another way? Just sayin'
