I also love how the paint looks chipped and old on the ends.
Although I don’t have a full Before picture, the piece was originally stained very dark. Below is a picture after I stripped the top, but before I applied Minwax Early American stain. The body is painted Behr’s Teal Zeal, of course not distressed and waxed yet.
The owner opted to keep the original hardware. I think it gives the piece a vintage vibe, don’t you?
Now that we’re finished homeschooling for the year, I’m relishing mornings in the garage painting my furniture stash. Today I finished this tricycle-red dresser. We’re finally getting some grass outside so Mr. Mimsy and I carried it out to the yard for a photo shoot. (Notice our Mastiff, Silas, in the background?)
Here’s a sneak peek of the red one’s sister, in process. The stenciling is something new and fresh for me, but I like it so much I know I’ll be doing it again.
I’m also working on a gray and pink hutch that reminds me of the Restoration Hardware Baby line ~ LOVE. The hutch is finished, but Mr. Mimsy fashioned a shelf to install in the closet portion today so I’m painting it to match the interior. It should be finished tomorrow.
What a joy painting all these pieces this week. It’s amazing what I get accomplished when I schedule uninterrupted time to work.
Blessings on your week ~
