Here is another piece finished, so nice to get things done! This dresser is from the 1920′s or 30′s, built very well dovetail joints and all. There were just a few small areas of missing veneer (filled with some wood putty and sanded) and the finish was quite dull. Out came the Annie Sloan chalk paint in Pure White and Paris Grey. I knew I wanted a crisp white and thought a Swiss cross would look cool so I cleaned it up and started painting. The only place that I was getting a little frustrated was laying out my design with Frog Tape. Math isn’t my best subject but after a bit of figuring on paper it worked out. And the Frog Tape is amazing, my son Christopher brought it home for me instead of the blue painters tape and I must say it was worth the extra cost.
Naturally I forgot to take before pictures! So I have a few in process photos and also photos of the hardware that I cleaned and used some Rub N Buff in antique gold, I love that stuff!
I’ve shared this project at Elizabeth & Co.
