This dresser is one of my favorite things lately ~ the pictures really don't do it justice.
It started out pretty boring… But I liked the clean lines & the keyholes (even if they were super-duper-glued on).
I painted it first in Annie Sloan's old white, then Aubusson. I love the contrast.
For some reason, the colors showed up so differently at different angles. Who knows?! I replaced the knobs (the originals were nice, but they were *glued* on and took a beating, from a hacksaw, in the removal process) but left the original casters.
It sold the day I listed it to a lady that my husband met at our house. It was hilarious ~ I wasn't home at the time, and I got this call from my husband… "the lady here really likes the dresser, but is concerned about the places where the white is showing through. Do we have any more of this paint?"
HA! I wanted to yell through the phone two things: that, yes, we have more paint but it is too expensive to share… and that it took me hours to accomplish that finish! However, I refrained :) Once she learned it was intentional, she decided she liked it & that was that. Goodness gracious.
