FAUX MARBLE MASTERPIECE - old dresser makeover




This OLD WORLD style dresser is almost complete.
I'm still going to lay a few more coats of poly on the top. It has at least seven coats now but a few more won't hurt as I want a nice glassy finished look to the faux marble top I created.




BEFORE               and                    AFTER
George and I got this dresser several years ago,
and yes it was bright teal when we got it! Beautiful color
but did not seem right for this piece.



********************************************************************





The Georgian style hardware I used was sprayed
with OIL RUBBED BRONZE from Rustoleum.
It's a delicious metallic chocolate color.


And the most exciting part ... The faux painted marble top.
Long ago I learned to do this and did it very successfully
on my bathtub surround. If I ever come across photos of it
I will be sure to share.


One more surprise ...
The bright teal is also inside and still lining all the drawers.
How fun is that?
Traditional outside with a bit of fun inside.


The body color is ASCP old white
with Minwax dark wax over top.
