Re-loved Antique Bedroom Set

By Rachel Gingold, Owner at Artistic Home Studio & Boutique in Alameda, CA.

This dresser and night stand were part of an antique bedroom set owned by our customer for over 50 years!  Her family had purchased it from an elderly couple when she was a teenager.  The finish was badly damaged, and many repairs were needed.  To highlite all the gorgous carvings and details, it was painted in Driftwood MP, dry-brushed with a little Persian blue, and glazed with Winter White Glaze Effect.  All the hardware was updated with D. Lawless hardware and it found a new home with a young lady who was purchasing her first "real furniture".  Hope she will keep it for another 50 years and pass it on!

The dresser and night stand tops were painted to look like faux marble, using Driftwood MP, Snow White MP & Antique White MP, and sealed with Satin HPTC.
