A few weeks ago I found this very UGLY dresser at the Flea Market and since it had such an awful paint job it was going for a very good price.
Someone had done a very poor job of spray painting the dresser and it had mismatch knobs. The good thing about this dresser was that it was very well made by Dixie. After a quick wipe down and a light sand I got out my chalky paint. I had bought Avocado by The Urban Rooster and decided that this was the dresser to try it on. After 2 coats of paint I sealed/aged it with dark wax and hemp oil. I loved the original knobs, but 2 were missing. The problem with the knobs and the wholes were that they were not a standard size. Had I figured this out before I painted ( note to self to measure before I paint!) I would have filled in the holes and drilled new ones. I knew that Derrick at D. Lawless Hardware could help me out. I found some great wooden pulls that would fit and so I ordered them . When they arrived I painted/waxed them and then drilled my holes and attached them to my dresser. Thanks D. Lawless Hardware !
