Faux-bamboo Dresser

For my next project, I found a bright yellow faux bamboo 1970's Thomasville dresser.  I love the decorative details around the legs and the knobs are so vintage looking.  The top surface is a tricky one - it is white Formica, FORMICA?  Yes, doesn't seem right, but I looked past that and bought it anyway.  It will make a colorful addition to my office. 

Here's the before picture.  I will need alot of primer for this one.  The paint is yellow with what looks like a faint splatter of gold accents.  Yes, a totally 70's look.

I plan to paint it a light teal and paint the knobs an aged bronze metallic.  Stay tuned...will post pictures when it is done.  Can't wait to see how this one turns out!
