Last week I found this great buffet/dresser on CL and brought it home.
This piece is by Drexel and very well made and structurally in great shape, but the finished was very scratched up and stained. The lady I bought it from said it had been her grandmother's.
I really liked the last buffet/dresser I painted black and I decided to go for it again. I mixed up Typewritter milk paint by Miss Mustard Seed and got to painting. After painting on two coats, I let it dry. Since this piece was so old and dry it did not chip and I am glad. I distressed the edges and then sealed the dresser with Linseed oil. I decided that the brass hardware looked great with the black and so I just put it right back on.
