Here is my project for the month of January.
She was pretty, but very old for sure. She needed a lot of work the slats that let the drawers slide were damaged or dangling. Mr. Sensible-Redesign fixed those for me and helped me sand the top.
This is a photo of the detail on the piece. It had lots of potential.
A bit of damage here on the side, but I believe those are beauty marks and usually leave those.
The top was pretty so I wanted to leave it natural, something I have not done in the past. It took lots of sanding because there was poly on the top of the piece. We sanded it all down and put a stain on it then a wipe on Poly.
I painted it an oops color from Home Depots sample section, 50 cents Woo Hoo! It's a grey / green there was no name on the color probably a custom match that didn't match... It worked well for me.
I distressed by sanding the edges and where it might get worn. Hit the high spots on the details, and where the handles were. Then mixed a brown glaze and wiped that on.
The handles were all there and in really good condition. So nothing needed to be done to those.
The finished Miss January.
She is for sale at Treasures Resale Furniture Consignment Store, Roswell Ga.
