A dresser redo

I found this dresser on Craigslist. I was in love at first sight. I didn't like her color but had a vision for her. I had several other projects I was working on, so there she sat in my dining room (lime green) waiting for her turn.

I've named her Penelope. I started to name all the pieces I do. I bought her in a bundle. Three dressers for $215. The seller wanted $200 just for her, $30 and $50 for the others. I told her to give me a price for all 3 together. She said $215.... couldn't pass that up.

She is dated 1890 and I loved her character. Here are her before and after pics...

I love her and have decided to give it to my daughter.
