I've been wanting to tackle a large project.
Something big that would give me a wow result.
I also love aqua.
In the past I've used it on a wicker chair, a breadbox, & frames.
This old, sad dresser was at the last auction I attended.
It was solid, but was missing some hardware,
and looked like it'd taken a knock or two through the years,
but I loved the shape, the legs, and that it was so well built.
My favorite spray paint is Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch,
which is what I used for this dresser.
The frame and drawer knobs were painted in Heirloom White Satin.
The drawer fronts were painted with Aqua.
Then 60 grit sandpaper was used to distress the paint.
After all the sanding and scratching and scrubbing was completed,
a coat of Minwax clear was applied to the dresser,
allowed to sit for half an hour,
then buffed to a shine.
I love the little drawers on top.
Hankie or glove drawers, perhaps?
There were three small holes on the top on each side,
so I believe at one time, there were tiny drawers sitting atop these.
(The holes were filled with Elmer's wood putty,
then sanded smoth before painting.)
The curves of this dresser are what really called to me.
I love the sexy curves.
My first dresser.
It's not perfect,
but all it's imperfections,
make it just perfect to me.
