Twenty dollar find! I love the mid-century modern dressers and had been looking for one for a long time. Low and behold one morning while I was on Facebook, one popped up on a rummage sale site. It was in rough shape, but I already had a vision of what I wanted it to look like! When I got the piece home, we cleaned it up and one of the wood handle pieces was missing....hmmm... what would work as a replacement... After some thought, and an old piece of trim laying around, I found the PERFECT replacement...and a project for my husband! He attached corner trim to the drawers.
I sanded the drawers down and stained them with General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain and top coated them with General Finishes High Performance Flat Top Coat. The rest of the dresser, and new handle pieces, were painted in General Finishes Coastal Blue Milk Paint and topcoated with General Finishes High Performance Flat Top Coat.
The dresser turned out exactly how I visioned and is a wonderful addition to our bedroom, especially with all the drawer space!!!
