Best Furniture Redo of 2011

Welcome to PattyPam I Forgot What I Was Doing and Jordan Sky of Deliciously Happy

Primitive and Proper  BEST furniture projects of 2011
This is a 'repeat' posting of 
My Best Furniture Redo in 2011

copied from my November 5, 2011 post with a few additions....

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)

  1. You made a really good job with the chest of drawers. I am enjoying catching up with your previous blog posts before I go back to work tomorrow, I love reading them.

  2. Wow, what a change! It's beautiful!

  3. Oh! I love that sort of thing.
    What a great "face-lift" it got.
    Thanks for sharing!!

  4. Whoa, what a transformation! Looks fantastic! I am a fan of those old wheels on furniture also. Sherry :)
