Project- Kitchen Island

Step one... dicker price down at Goodwill.
Step two... haul it home.
Step three... sand badly scraped up dresser.
Step four... paint top white (until we can get white marble top made for it)

Step seven... persuade hubby to saw off handles (cause they are very old and someone mushroomed out the screws so they won't come off)
Step eight... paint drawers.
Step nine... replace bottom of drawers.
Done!
