A couple years ago I scored this awesome antique dresser at a garage sale. I paid a bit much for it, but I knew it would look great once I stripped the old paint off of it. It started out a beige color with a crackle finish.
This project took me 2 years to finish, but it is finally done! It needed to be completely stripped. My original plan was to stain the whole thing, but it had some rough spots on it that paint would cover. With a coat of Dutch Boy paint (Rockets) and a Brazillian Rosewood gel stain on the top surface, it turned out better than I could have expected!
The wood grain on the top is gorgeous and I just couldn’t paint it. I put on new crystal knobs and replaced one keyhole hardware that was missing. The little details are what makes this dresser perfect.
