I guess I was just in the right place at the right time for this sweet little dresser. I was minding my own business driving through my neighborhood and saw an estate sale sign late in the afternoon. It just so happened it was the last hour of the sale and everything was reduced to 75% off!
It looks grey in this picture but think dirty white. Really dirty. But structurally it was in fantastic condition; the previous paint job was pretty good so I didn't need to strip it. The top was gorgeous as well. It just had some poly that had seen some better days.
It got a thorough wipe down with TSP and a light sanding on the body and top. I just sanded the top enough to remove the poly that had bubbled and cracked.
The top got several new coats of General Finishes Topcoat. Isn't it gorgeous? I love the walnut grain on this dresser.
I painted the body in ASCP Duck Egg with clear wax.
And gave the copper hardware a nice little buff:
And it was gone that weekend to a lovely young lady. How's that for flipping a dresser in a week? (If only they could all be that easy!)
Hope you're forging full steam ahead with holiday preparations! I for one, am not even remotely ready with anything (shopping, decorating, baking, cleaning, wrapping)! But there's always tomorrow! Oh wait, I have an appointment to see a lovely secretary desk....and secretary desks ALWAYS take first priority!
Thanks for stopping by!
