I have not been posting as much lately because I am having a hard time keeping up with everything that makes up my life, but I am going to try to be more consistent !
I found a cute vintage dresser at the Flea Market and of course brought it home.
It is hard to tell from this picture, but the top of this dresser was covered in paper that had been glued down and then underneath that the ENTIRE top was covered in clear plastic packaging tape! I have never see the likes of this and it was extremely difficult to remove.
After sanding, stripping and more sanding, the top was good to go. I purposely left a bit of paint and imperfections on the wood (character).
I sealed the top with AS dark wax/Linseed oil.
I don't paint many pieces white, but this dresser just felt like staying light and bright to me. I pulled out Marshmallow Cream by The Urban Rooster and painted the dresser with 2 coats of the chalk paint.
After the paint dried, I distressed the edges and then sealed it with Clear Carnuba Wax by The Real Milk Paint Company.
Love Peonies and Stock!
I love the scalloped bottom!
The turned legs with wooden castors make me smile!
I am loving this darling Farmhouse/Cottage Dresser!
