I finally got my dresser finished!! I was busy with other things for the last two weeks so I haven't had time to work on my own stuff, but today I got this dresser done and I am pleased with how it turned out!
I don't use chalk or milk paint for my projects just yet. When I started my whole house makeover about three years ago I really wasn't familiar with these paints and I already started painting with this color so I can't switch colors now. I can't wait to try my hand at different paints and finishes, but now wasn't the time.
I bought this dresser at the flea market about three weeks ago, I wasn't there looking for a dresser, but that's usually when I find something. I had been thinking about replacing my current one for something a little larger, taller. I wasn't actively looking since I didn't NEED a new one, but when I saw this I thought it would work perfectly. And at $120.00 I new I would have a tough time finding something I liked as well for such a super price.
I loved the lines and the fact that it's tiered
I love the handles, I like the look of dark tarnished metal handles against the light color.
I did something different on this one, I refinished the top and gave it a clear coat. The grain is so beautiful I wanted some of it to show. I picked some of our roses for the pictures, aren't they beautiful? Such a beautiful coral color!
I distressed it a little
I love the legs
And the beautiful fluting on the sides
My ipad wasn't having any part of watermarking my photos today so some have it and some don't, but I had to share after photos today:)
