Let me introduce my dresser ...
She has been with us for a couple of years, brought from Ebay for a steal of course.
She's big, practical (you can only imagine the junk hid away inside!) but not very pretty.
I have been wanting to give her a makeover for sometime. I kept putting it off knowing it would be a big job.
But now I've finally done it...
.... aahhhhh .... that's better!
No more ginger varnish, no more faux metal handles!
Still as big and practical but pretty to boot!
What do you think?
It was a bit of a team effort, I had roped my reluctant Husband in to dismantle her and lay the sheets down for painting.
(I promised him a lie in, in return for his services.)
Using Annie Sloan Old White, I gave her two coats, then my Husband offered to take the top to the workshop and sand off all the gingery varnish! Who am I to refuse such an offer?!?
He returned home a few hours later with not only a beautifully buffed and waxed top but 6 little draw knobs too. (Do you think I owe him another lie in now?)
After spending what seemed like an age waxing the paint work (I wish he offered to do that too!).
She was finished and ready to be reassembled.
Pleased as punch with the results.
Thanks for reading ladies.
