Dresser re-do

I'm going to make a promise to myself. I will even go so far as to write it in blood. I will NEVER, EVER, EVER modge podge anything onto furniture. I found this little dresser at a store in Phoenix called Lizabel's Treasures. They have great stuff, you should check it out. Anyways, I loved the lines and details and thought to myself "Self, it can't be that hard to take those hideous modged podged flowers off- you're coming home with me!". And then I tried to razor them off. Then used chemical cleaners, then got a freakin chemical paint remover. It left a sticky residue and I had to scrape with all my little might but it still had bumps. I'm the kind of cheap person who refuses to buy tools for projects when a metal spatula will work just as well but even trusty spat didn't work. Anyways to make a short story ridiculously long, I ended up just sanding off as much as I could and then painting over it all. A project that should have taken an hour turned into 3 days. Die Modge Podge.
