I bought this dresser at a moving sale and originally saw it online and had no idea what condition it was in or even if the drawers were in working order.
I knew there something about it though that spoke to me. It seemed charming and it seems sturdy enough. So with faith in hand, I set out to pick it up and managed to pick up three gorgeous pieces at the same time (more on the other two in upcoming posts).
Here she is before:
Right away, I knew that I wanted to keep the natural wood on the top. With a little furniture stripper and steel wool, I was able to restore it to it’s natural beauty. I finished the top of it with some Miss Mustard Seed’s Hemp Oil. It is ALWAYS my go to to bring dry old wood back to life. It never fails.
This is the top with half Hemp Oil and half before being sealed. Isn’t it amazing? I know right?
The dresser got painted in half Miss Mustard Seed’s Grain Sack and half Mustard Seed Yellow. I love the soft tone of this color. I painted three coats to get a nice even coverage and added Bonding Agent to make sure it adhered properly.
Here is the process:
And the finished product!
