White and Burl Mid Century Modern Dresser

By Jeanette Carney, Owner at Ravenswood Revival in Chicago, IL.

This mid century modern dresser was redone to emphasize the sculpted pulls and burl panels on the drawers. The drawer fronts were prepped by cleaning and sanding the sections to be painted, taping them off, and hand painting them using Ultra White Pro Classic paint by Sherwin Williams. After several coats, the paint was sealed with General Finishes High Performance topcoat in Satin. I also refreshed the top of the piece by lightly sanding - just removing the sheen, not sanding to bare wood - and applying General Finishes Gel Stain in Antique Walnut. The top was then sealed with a custom mixed wipe-on oil finish.
