Sneak peek at my daughter's dresser

Hi all! I can't believe it's Friday already, time is flying by.  I have been planning and tackling a few projects in my house since I've been stuck in the house due to "snowpocalypse".

I want to show you the progress on my daughter's dresser, it is nearing the end and I am really pleased at the way it is taking shape.

Remember how it looked before...  The wood veneer on the dresser was peeling off and missing in places.  A little bit of sanding, scraping off the peeling veneer and a fresh coat of paint really revived this dresser.  To add a little more interest I painted geometric design to the front of the drawer.

I wanted to change the drawer pulls to give the dresser bit of an updated look.  Even though, I like the the original brass pulls they were tarnished and looked old,  just didn't work well with the fresh new look.    I picked up drawer pulls from Home Depot which I really liked and it matched the design well, but to use them I would have to fill in holes from the old pulls and paint.  That's a lot of work I don't have the attention span or the patience for!

Then, I decided to use some gold rub n buff (my favorite new wax) on the old pulls, because I didn't want to spend the time removing the tarnish, call me lazy this was much easier and so nice!

I put the old pulls on the drawer and my daughter and I like it much better now in it's new state.

I outlined the geometric pattern with a thin line of burnt umber color paint to give it an effect of a shadow.  It made the design pop and made it much more interesting.


Well, that is about all I can show you for now... I will be finished in a few days and I can't wait to show you the results!

Thanks for stopping by!
