To Buy or Not to Buy?

Hey ya'll!

I need some opinions, and fast! I found this dresser on Craigslist and need to decide whether I should buy it or not.

It has three drawers on each side and shelves behind the doors. I'm thinking about how easy it would be to take the doors off and put baskets on the shelves. (think Pottery Barn here!). I would be sanding off the finish and painting it white with a high-gloss paint. So what do you think?

Karen, what a great project! Sounds like it will be a great PB impostor! I refinished the dresser that I used for all my kids and it turned out great! It was stained dark and I sanded the finish off and painted it white, just like you described! It was easy and fun! You can see it on my blog! I found my cute ladybug knobs at Target!
I say buy it!

Thanks Diane! I am going to go for it!

Hey, I would say go for it. I don't strip when I refinish. I do a light sand and get a really good primer. I think it was called BIN, if a primary that covers everything really well. If they aren't asking too much, I would definately go for it!!! Stephe
