We picked up two dressers from a Facebook selling group and knew they would fit perfectly in our soon to be (sometime this year) walk in closet.
I decided that a light blue would be the color to play with this time around. Unusual for me because I really prefer darker tones in the house. We have a lot of natural light and the darker colors are comforting to me. Not much of a white palate person here.
The top was showing some wear and tear, but nothing that couldn’t be dealt with.
The dresser had chippy stain all over, so it was time to pull out the sander and get busy. I really don’t mind sanding too much.
Even when it’s 90 degrees outside? No problem! Start at 9am and see how fast paint dries in this heat. (It dries fast by the way)
Loving these art deco-ish drawer pulls!
Painted the drawer fronts and then the dresser. Added a dark walnut stain that I wiped off almost as soon as I wiped it on, to accent the top. Finished wax to protect and a gallon of water consumed …. yes I was thirsty….and it was 90 degrees out.
We have enough spray paint to make any graffiti artist green with envy, but not a single can of white. So the knobs were redone in a nice black. I think the black makes her look a little less innocent don’t you?
The top is slightly different with the stain on the paint. Just enough…..not drastically different.
Looking forward to finishing her mate and getting them both into our soon to be (sometime this year) walk in closet…..maybe by winter? *grin*
