Reloved Chest of Drawers

By Monica Mercer, Owner at Brush Up Restoration & Decor

Winning Category

I was able to take an antique Chest of drawers that needed some love and revived it. Inremoved the drawer hardwareI cleaned the entire piece with odorless mineral spirits and sanded with a 150 grit sanding pad to get off old residue and grime.  I then sanded down the top and stained it with Java Gel Stain. I allowed that to dry for 48 hours and taped off and painted the bottom and drawers with GF Antique White Milk Paint. It took three coats to get a good coverage.
