Vintage Painted Wooden 3 Drawer Dresser

Updated and Painted
Vintage White Dresser

Old handles removed. New holes drilled for new handles. Too far apart holes were filled with a dowel/glue and a bit of spackle, sanded and primed.  One drawer side was reglued. Drawer fronts and tops were sanded. 

CeCe Caldwell Simply White, two coats on drawer fronts, three on top, one on each side/legs. Satin Finish (wax) CeCe Caldwell, new handles on. Done.

While I had the paint out I taped a watercolor painting so I could freshen the frame. Picked up some Frog Tape to try. The tape was on the picture for two weeks until I was ready to paint. It pulled off just fine (whew) and left the glass paint free.

Take a moment to visit Gail of  This Green Life to read about (and see) her two Advent Calendar Quilts.
