This maple six drawer dresser had serious issues! Initially, I wondered what I was thinking to have purchased it. It was spray painted purple and veneer was missing on the top corners. I threw out what pulls were left because they were spray painted a tacky looking silver.
After making repairs and sanding, paint, glaze, and distressing did their magic! Turquoisebrought the dresser back to life. Black Glaze highlighted the years of wear on the original finish, creating an eye-catching weathered look. New knobs and pulls topped off the rustic feel of this piece.
This ornate nightstand is painted, glazed and distressed in two colors. Robin’s Egg Blue covers the drawers, sides, and molding, with Black Glaze accenting details areas. The top and bottom are painted Black, with white primer popping through the distressing.
The original pull for the top drawer had been replaced by a knob by the time I purchased it. I replaced it with a vintage pull that fit the style better, and spray painted it and the bottom drawer pull black.
