Faux real

By Jenna in Colstrip, MT.

This laminate dresser was in need of an upcycle. Some drawers were beyond saving so we made it into a TV stand/entertainment table. Painted with Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint in Linen White. To create the “wood” stained top I used Retique It - then used General Finishes Java Gel stain. I love the way it turned out!
