This dresser was so ordinary I almost passed right by it. But it was half-off day at Last Chance in Chamblee, so things are always worth a second look.
Nice 'before' picture, huh?
I stripped & sanded the top ~ the wood is nice. I filled the *very-awkward* holes on all the drawers (they were missing much of the original hardware… I have no idea what it could have looked like!)
This shelf unit thingie that is awaiting attention served as great drawer storage!
I painted the piece in Louis Blue (chalk paint, of course)…
Stained the top dark walnut…
Roughed it up a bit and added Annie Sloan's dark wax.
And… ta da! I am thrilled to pieces with this piece! I love the contrast between the light blue, the stained top & the heavy hardware (all heavy iron).
Perfection, in my book! It may be staying for a bit :)
thanks! have a great day!
