A few weeks back I was lucky enough to find a salesman sample size dresser. It stands about 2 feet tall by 18 inches wide and is about 12 inches deep. Clearly it had been used and abused over the years and had multiple layers of paint. My first attempt at painting brought about dismal results. I ended up starting all over. Sanding and painting again.
I can only imagine the number of years little hands pulled on these drawers. What did she put in the drawers? Oh the goodies I can put in them now.
Just a little clean up.
This sweet color is new to me. On a recent trip to the paint store I found this color Gum Drop by Krylon. Two coats later...
Some light sanding and a few delicate (homemade) decals, made this dresser picture perfect.
When I sanded it, the pale yellow peeked out beautifully.
The knobs were given a coat of bronze. Just a sweet piece to put in the studio and keep all kinds of great craft supplies in. This means a whole bunch of rearranging. Love it!
