I have had a hard time finding old dressers lately, but I did find this great grungy old one a few weeks back.
I love the look and the details, but every drawer needed to be fixed and the the top was a disaster!
I stripped the top and sanded it down.
I purposely left bits of paint and I love all the scrapes and gouges. I sealed it with Linseed oil and left it like this.
After a quick clean, I painted the base of the dresser with home-made chalk paint in Garlic Clove by Benjamin Moore.
|I love the slated sides! Swoon!|
After the paint dried, I scraped the edges for a worn, chippy finish and sealed the dresser with AS clear wax.
The final touch was adding old porcelain knobs.
|I love the wooden castors!|
|This is a great keyhole detail!|
