The most popular dresser in blogdom

I finally bought a new piece of furniture today! It's the classic French dresser that everyone has already redone, and now Lovely Beasts is taking it on! It's curvy and beautiful with ornate handles, but completely dated by the yellow and gold.

I cleaned it off with Krud Kutter and I'm hoping to start to paint tomorrow, but I won't touch the top just yet. Unfortunately for the dresser, the top is covered with laminate. After searching online for ways to remove it, I've come to the conclusion it's way too much work and won't produce the proper results (the glue stays in the wood grain and is virtually impossible to get off even with a ton of sanding). So I have a plan for the top! But need to buy some materials for it first. Can you guess what I'm going to do??? To be continued...
