The Four Drawer Dresser


I've finished this piece awhile ago but I've decided it deserves to have its own post because of how gorgeous it is.

The Before... The color of the finish was gorgeous but all those scratches will not do!





The after.... Just a small face lit. Okay alot! But she looks Alot more stunning, and a bit young for how old she is?!









The paint was a custom color of a soft grey/ blue mix glazed with a black. The top is Dark Kona protected with Varathane 's water based poly (Is it just me or does it seem that Varathane changed their water based poly along with their new labels?). Once again, the knobs are from Hobby Lobby. And those details on the sides... Oh my!

I wished to keep her but by the time I made up my mind, she sold.

I guess you don't know what you really have til it's gone!

Thanks for looking!

  3. Such a beautiful makeover, I can see why she sold so quickly. I really like the darker top with that custom grey/blue too. Amazing work!

  5. Great transformation - love the color. A question about Hobby Lobby knobs. Instead of the top of the screw being on the inside of the drawer to screw into the back of the knob, their knobs seem to screw into the drawer. What do you do with the tail end sticking out in the drawer? This is probably the silliest question ever!

    1. I've always wondered that myself, so thanks for asking :-p Is there a tool that will cut through the screw?
