I am back to getting my Refunk on this week since the temps around here have finally cooled off! Even though you can paint indoors with Heirloom Traditions Paint, since there are no VOCs, it was too hot to even lug furniture around!
I just bought this dresser at Bargains Galore a few weekends ago and I have been itching to work on her.
She had all kinds of mismatching knobs and some of the molding was missing off the the bottom drawers. But, the quatrefoil detail overrode all of her blemishes to me. As soon as I saw her, I was sold. S to the woon!
I painted her with one coat of Repose Gray, then I painted on a coat of Metallic Masters in Tarnished Silver used then used Jet Black Furniture Wax over the top. The black toned down the silver giving it the perfect depth and dimension.
I added crystal knobs.
And see what I mean by that quatrefoil carvings I was obsessing about?
I love how she was transformed from an ugly stepsister on the side of the road into something more Cinderella like.
I am so tempted to keep her. But, I have learned that I always tell myself that. If I don’t love it, I don’t sell it. That’s my rule.
On another note, did you see my guest post over at How To Nest for Less this week?
There are some pretty post-Axton chubby photos of me over there… So you won’t want to miss seeing my extra rolls! Oh, and maybe you can check out some of my projects while your over there too.
Have a great weekend and go get your DIY on!
