We were traveling up to meet "a guy" and buy some furniture. It had snowed the night before but not enough to keep us from going. Christie and I hopped in her van, trailer attached, and headed out of town. Little did we know that the place we were traveling had not yet been plowed. We had one very real moment when we started to go backwards down a hill....We did not want to go backwards down that hill...
Christie handled it like a champ and we came home with some great pieces.
This beautiful dresser had once been a show stopper. However, some of the inlay is now missing and the legs were cosmetically damaged. I was at least hoping to refinish the top but was unable to salvage it.
I decided to get adventurous with color and technique with this one.
I used ASCP Napoleonic Blue with Coco accents. It was finished with Clear and Dark Wax. The hardware was amazing so no need to do a thing to it. I am very pleased by how this turned out. However, you should see my pile of used painters tape. I'll bet it is as tall as the dresser itself.
I have several MMS Milk Paint pieces on the back porch right now. I will share those starting next week. I am not going to do my usual furniture post on Sunday because I will be at home celebrating my Grandpa's 91st birthday.
Thanks for checking in!
