Dresser LOVE

Welcome to mid-week.  How did that happen?  When you have lots to accomplish in a small amount of time, it seems that time just flies.

I have been painting in preparation for The Rural Society Show.  I completed a dresser that I just love.  I hope someone loves this color as much as I do.

I have had this baby for too long.  As you can see she needed lots of prep work. 

Glue & clamps and lots of wood filler came to the rescue.

She received 2 coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Provence.

I tried to salvage the diamond pattern on the middle drawer.

But it just looked like I forgot to paint it.

Lightly sanded with coats of light and dark wax.

Then buffed to a nice shine.  The details are fabulous.

This baby will be with me at the show!
