Like the little engine that could. This little dresser thought she could, knew she could be something special. I agreed, and Got a little "Miss Mustard Seed" with her.
Here she is when we got her into the shop. Very pretty or at least she had potential for sure.
I wanted to try a Grey and White color combination as I have seen so many of you do.
I painted the whole piece the Grey color. Then put a coat of clear wax over the whole thing. After that was dry I painted the drawers and the inset sides a white. I also took a dry brush with white and dry brushed the raised parts of the backboard. I then distressed the piece with Grey showing through the white areas. A colored wax then went on over the whole piece.
I kept the original hardware, I thought it was pretty and went so well with the backboard design.
I even tried my hand at staging it since I painted this one at home and am taking it back to the shop.
The little blue dresser was very happy again. Now hopefully she will find a new home very soon.
