I'm so excited to show you what I've been working on the past week!
I snapped this photo on my phone of this big dresser I found recently at a local consignment shop. I'd been searching for one for a long time.
First, I put it outside and sanded all the stain off the top with an orbital sander, being careful not to sand through the thin veneer. Then I sanded the sides by hand with sanding sponges to remove the shine.
I brought it inside and stained the top with one coat of Minwax dark walnut stain followed by three coats of wipe-on polyurethane.
I painted the bottom with two coats of Glidden flat paint. I sanded both the poly and paint between coats for a smooth-as-silk finish on both the top and sides.
•The color I used is called Linen.
I put the knobs and handles in a cardboard box and painted them with oil rubbed bronze spray paint.
Then I got to work distressing everything by hand. And, boy, was it a workout!
Are you starting to see my vision? :)
Next, I rubbed clear furniture wax onto the paint and buffed everything to a soft glow.
I stained the middle drawers to match the top and finished the cabinet door that hides them, just in case we ever want to use this as a dresser in a bedroom. But for now, the drawers and door are stored away in the basement.
In their place are some shelves I made to hold the cable box, bluray player, and a basket. Holes were drilled through the back for the cables and wires.
It feels wonderful to finally have the exact piece of furniture I've wanted for such a long time.
Thanks so much for letting me share it with you today!
