Finished the Dresser

Linking with Miss Mustard Seed, Favorite Furniture of 2011
Primitive and Proper  BEST furniture projects of 2011

Why I didn't take pictures of DH fixing a couple of loose bits, adding the wheels, putting on the handles I don't know. Glue, clamps, nails, screws, cleaning up glue drips, you recognize the process.

Here it is, finished. I posted about it here and here and finally, finished.

I love the look. Its the first time I've tried two colours on one piece of furniture and I love the end result. There were two handles missing so the bottom drawer got handles that are a bit shinier, shaped a bit differently. This dresser arrive with wheels but the holes were there and the dresser was so happy to get its wheels again.
Finished, beautiful, vintage
a second and third wax and buff
added more Paris Grey inside the slats and edges
Isn't that wheel delicious - so worn, rust so smooth,
love the paint (ASCP Versailles under Paris Grey, clear wax)
