The OLD WORLD style dresser is complete.
We'll I'm still going to lay a few more coats of poly on the top as long as it is here.
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.
|BEFORE and AFTER|
George and I got this dresser several years ago when we first started playing house,
and yes it was bright teal when we got it!
It now looks luscious but this makeover also has an in between photo.
At the time I had a full time job and a can of brown AURA paint by Benjamin Moore.
I put the embellishment on it and paired it with a mirror I found, painted it all and it served us well.
Since we redid our dressing room last year it really has not had a place here any more.
So it was time to move on and let it go to a home where it can be used again.
The Georgian style hardware I used was sprayed with OIL RUBBED BRONZE
from Rustoleum. It's a delicious metallic chocolate color.
And the part most of you are waiting to see ...
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.
