I know I have been working on the guest room for some time now, or at least it feels that way, but I can scratch off another piece of the project.
I thought I had better before shots of this dresser, but cannot find them. I didn't take many
pictures of it because I didn't like it this way. It is actually a very nice piece by Thomasville, but I
am tired of the pine look.
After some sanding and painting it is fresh and new looking. The lower drawer on the right
got the top corner broken off a long time ago as you can see.
This was not an easy paint project. No sir. The drawers would not pull out so that I could paint the base easily. Even Mr. Savvy, who is very handy, could not figure it out. So I had to paint with the drawers still in.
I decided to use the same handles and these were not fun to paint. I hand painted with a tiny model type paint brush to make the pine wood centers white.
Here it is with the mirror I refinished. You can see that project HERE.
Still need to get Mr. Savvy to remove the sliders out from under the feet.
Now would you leave it white and pristine or distress it? Doesn't really have any pretty
details that would show up and I don't think everything should be distressed, but
what is your opinion? Inquiring minds want to know.
A couple more small projects and this room will be finished.
Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my blogaversary.
Have a great week,
I used Behr paint with primer in cotton knit.
