This dresser has seen better days....
It actually looks like it's in really rough shape, but most of it is cosmetic....
the "bones" of this dresser are pretty good!
"after" ~ much better!!!
lots of hardware on this piece!

Renae went to Washburn to pick up this dresser & the previous blog entry titled "Green, like Grass". She dropped this beauty off at my house & we both got started on our dresser "transformations". I must say, I think they turned out pretty darn good! New colors added new life to these rather outdated, drab dressers.
The color I used on this one was ASCP in Provence, mixed with French Gray. The color took on a light slate blue ~ really timeless & classy. I didn't use any of the original hardware b/c as you can see, most of it was missing. I searched through our stash of hardware & pieced together a unique blend & I actually not only like the combination, I love it!!! I did have to spray the hardware oil rubbed bronze so that it all had a cohesive look.
Once painted, distressed, & waxed with some "new", old hardware this piece is ready & waiting for a new home....maybe yours??
