This piece is definitely in my top 3 of favorite pieces I have ever done.  The minute I picked up the dresser I knew I wanted to use a transfer on it.  I found the new colored transfers and fell in love with the design.  I painted the base in a deep gray, Queenstown Gray, painted the drawers in Seagull Gray, light enough to make the transfer pop.  The transfer was the crowning glory.  It looks perfect with the chosen colors.  After sanding the top I felt a stain was needed to show off the beautiful grain.  Finally I switched out the hardware to better represent the new vintage makeover.
