Fixer Upper

I've been sick this past week, but I'm starting to feel a little bit better. I was going through my pictures today I was reminded of a dresser we bought last year that I've yet to fix up.

My mom and I found it at a church flea market and we were charmed by it's cute mirror and little knobby legs. Unfortunately some crafty-person-gone-wrong attacked this beautiful antique and did one of those faux marble painted jobs on the top in a hideous pink (don't get me wrong - I like pink - this is still gross) and did some textured gray thing to the knobs and rather ruined it, but we can fix it.

My mother wants to strip it and probably varnish it the color it originally was whereas I prefer the shabby chic kind of thing to sand it all down and paint it white all over. We'll see who wins. ;) I think she wants to save the wood knobs, but they really are junked up and I think it'd look even cuter with some nice anthropology like knobs or some drawer pulls. What do you think? I should take some close up pictures to show you the details better.

I'm with you...shabby chic all the way! I think it will look very cute. It would look good varnished, too... but I think your way would give it some good character :-)
