Today I am going to show you a French Dresser I picked up at the local thrift store. I know it seems like I get everything there and I mostly do! ;)
Here it is in all its glory, I think it is so pretty.
Here is what it looked like when I bought it. Not bad but not "pretty"
Here is a close up of a drawer they are all curved.
I painted the body of the piece Annie Sloans Country Grey mixed with Old White. Then I mixed a LOT more Old White to that mixture and painted the drawers. They appear almost white but they aren't.
I distressed the piece and used a clear wax on it and Poly on the top. I also painted the drawer pulls. First I sprayed them with an off white, then I painted them with the darker of the two colors and dry brushed them with the lighter color. I didn't feel they had enough contrast so I used a dark wax on them in the crevices.
