I sanded it and repaired missing areas of veneer with my KwikWood epoxy putty.
You can find it at Home Depot!
After that I gave it a quick coat of Kilz~
I headed to Sherwin Williams and they mixed up a Home Depot color for me~"Embellished Blue."
The dresser got a heavy distressing around the edges with my sander, and then I brushed on the darkest brown RL Glaze, "Tobacco."
For the finish, I wiped on a couple coats of Minwax Wipe On Poly.
The original knobs were gold. And ugly.
I found these glass knobs at a vintage shop near my house that I used for the top knobs~
For the bottom drawers I just fixed up some of these wooden knobs to match the rest of the dresser.
Remember how the dresser looked before?
So much better now~
