https://ThriftDiving.com - This mid century modern dresser makeover didn't turn out exactly as I had thought it would. It was only $25 at the thrift store. Instead of painting it, I wanted to strip and refinish it back to its original beautiful natural wood veneer, using stripping gel, and applied 100% tung oil to bring out the beautiful grain. But things didn't go as planned. See how this quasi-DIY fail turned out and the lessons learned. See what happened.
