This dresser was in very good condition when I’ve got it, apart from the drawers that needed new stoppers and the top with some deep scratches that I had to sand it down to remove them a bit. They weren’t removed completely but it’s much better than before.
Then I’ve painted the base of the dresser and the side of the top in Annie Sloan CP ‘French Linen’, the back panel of the top in ‘Graphite’ and finished with clear wax.
The top of the base received one coat of gel wax in antique pine and one coat in walnut to give it some richness and a vintage look. The shelves of the top part received just one coat of gel wax in walnut.
A bit of painting can transform an old furniture bringing in some character and style. There is no need to get rid off of furniture just because it doesn’t fit a new decor. Painting an used furniture gives a new lease of life and doesn’t break the bank.
