The wood looks great!
I'll take a side view picture and post it later, the laminate on the sides is almost in prime condition and it's a burl wood.
Is the front paint or actual blanket strips?
Either way, it looks nice. .....
It's paint and no, I didn't use a stencil. Once I sanded off the black paint someone had put on the dresser I had serious second thoughts about painting it at all but that's what the wife wanted and it's her Christmas present. You can't tell in the picture but a lot of the laminate on the drawer faces was damaged and layers missing, especially along the bottoms, the torn up looking base in the before picture the laminate was pretty well destroyed. The top was missing all the laminate plus was slightly bulged upwards at one end and split about a third of the way along the length, some of the wood was black due to the old water stain and the center of the bottom drawer had warped slightly outward plus a few other water related issues. In the condition it was in most people would have tossed it.
