I hit the jackpot over the weekend and got three vintage dressers and an art deco nightstand! The nightstand just needs a little TLC with Hemp Oil, but the chests are getting bigger makeovers.
The first up was this 1940s dresser. I painted it Miss Mustard Seed's Mustard Seed and added hand painted scrolls in white to the top drawer and bottom skirt.
This is how it started out. Someone had stripped off all of the veneer and refinished the sub-layer wood. Even though the dresser itself is in great shape, it was not very pretty.
Now it has a little more style.
I did not add bonding agent - but it didn't chip much, anyway. I distressed a little bit here and there to bring out a little of the brown wood.
I left the top and knobs wood, which contrast with the yellow very nicely.
If I could paint everything in milk paint, I would!
Find this in our booth at R & R Antiques located at 1001 Caroline Street, Downtown Fredericksburg, VA.
'til next time!
