I couldn't believe this little cutie I found at our local Goodwill store. I never find good furniture there, but we always go because it's Maya's favorite thrift shop! :)
I gave it a light sanding, just to smooth everything out.
The sides and front of the dresser were painted with one quick coat of Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint, and the remaining areas got a sparse coat of Old White~
After distressing, I waxed it first with clear then dark wax~
I stripped and sanded the top. A mix of dark walnut and ebony stain gave the top a lovely, rich look.
Several coats of Tung Oil finished the top off just perfectly!
I gave the original hardware a spray of this~
The drawers were lined in this pretty brown and white fabric from JoAnn's. I used spray adhesive to keep the fabric in place~
I think the before is pretty cute~
These are the after pics of the dresser in its' new home! I forgot to take pics before it sold, so I got to go see it this morning in Melody's home. I've never seen any of my pieces once they've sold, so it was so much fun!
Did you see the little glass globe on top of the dresser? It says "Seek Beauty." I like that! :) Have a beautiful day!
