So this week has been all about the dressers I picked up in West Virginia, so I figured I would share with you the last one I bought there. You have already seen the two toned oak dresser, as well as the vintage dresser I kept for my room, and today you will see the last one, a sweet vintage 3 drawer dresser with a mirror.
Here is what I was working with....
I loved the pretty wood tones of the drawers and loved the original hardware. I didn't love the shape the top was in, and the sides weren't as pretty as the front either. I decided to use Miss Mustard Seed's Grainsack milk paint. It's a beautiful slight gray. I sanded the body first lightly, then mixed my paint. I gave it two coats, and then used super fine sandpaper to sand all over, to allow the paint to wear and ship where it wanted to. Finally, I waxed it with a clear wax and buffed it. I wish you could feel this dresser because if you could, it would feel like buttah.
Here is the final result... I realize that two toned isn't always for everyone, and it's not even really for me in my own home aside from some wood tops with painted bases, but I like it. :)
Sarah and I will be setting up our barn space on Monday. It's already going to be full, and not with any of the pieces I have shared this week. (I have a big dining table I have wanted to share, but haven't had the chance to photograph!) The good news is when March rolls around, I will be all set to fill 'er back up!
Hope you all have an amazing Thursday!
