    Great job – I love it

    We have a huge piece like yours that held our “big, deep ugly TV and all our stereo equipment” to in storage in Vernal, UT. As well as the rest of our furniture (2 storage units full) we had to leave in storage when my husbands job required us to move across the country to PA for a year, then we moved to Mesa, where we are now and I can’t wait to go get everything out and haul it here (it will be like Christmas morning for me 🙂 but I’m not hauling that huge beast with me. It would take up half the U-Haul space.

    I literally was thinking about our behemoth stereo cabinet last night. It’s very similar to yours. I know exactly what you mean. I’ve always wanted to redo a buffet. Guess now’s the time! Yours looks great.

  4. cassie says:

    ooooh it looks amazing! i was scared at first…. all these scary pictures….please don’t ever get muscles like that. eeeew.

  5. such a good idea to fill in the details a bit. Looks great.

  6. Dang! You’re good! I have a similar beast housing all our lost CD’s… , it’s been on the list for a very long time. Actually the reason I flipped a dresser in the first place. One of these days, I’ll finish it.

  7. Susan says:

    Wow! I would never had thought to fill in the detail.. but you did a great job, I love it!

  8. Hopefully, the mother ship won’t come looking for that since it’s a beauty!

  9. karin says:

    HOLY COW! I can’t believe that is even the same piece!!! WONDERFUL!

  10. Jessica Culp says:

    I am currently about to sell mine. I’d LOVE to see inside your cabinet to see how that looks. Trying to figure out how to use some of the furniture I have to do just something like this:)

  11. cute piece! I LOVE THE COLOR , SUCH A UNIQUE REDO!

    Sounding like a broken record, a wonderful redoux
    miracle worker. I can’t wait till you teach a class with glazing. Maybe I need to break into my piggy bank and have a private lesson. I need to get back into painting. Still have my to do list.

  13. Amazing! I have a couple of pieces that I would love to try that Virginia Chestnut on… hmmm. 🙂

    The irony of the “Relax” sign on GTC’s dresser is not lost on ol’ S.H.

  15. Bliss says:

    Love it pinned it, but that body builder photo is going to haunt me.

  16. Jan says:

    I love it!
    I use a ton of wood filler so it’s good to know joint compound is will work when there are significant gaps to fill.
    So what are you going to do with The Beast? I’ve heard people looking for similar pieces to paint and reutilize for toys. They hold a lot and don’t take up much floor space.

  17. It turned out wonderful! Great work, but please don’t ever show that body builder again.

  18. Really great redo! I love the texture and the piece is super!

  19. You crack me up! You will be one of the features tomorrow at Make it Pretty Monday at The Dedicated House. Hope to see you at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  20. Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. says:

    Beautiful! And I have a big green beast sitting in my garage!

  21. Abi says:

    It came out perfectly!! I would of never thought to put the wood filler into the design–it looks great!

  22. Stacey says:

    Amazing! Love how you filled the parts in you wanted to hide. Cool tip!
    Gorgeous result!
    Thanks for sharing – have a blessed week!
