Copper Accented Dresser

This pretty dresser hadn't been lovingly cared for in years and had been left curbside.  The top was painted with two coats of Dark Chocolate Milk Paint.  After 24 hours I dry brushed the top with Copper Pearl Accents.  Once that was dry the top was sealed with Arm-R-Seal for durability.

The drawer fronts were sanded and stained with Java Gel Stain.  The drawers were then sealed with Arm-R-Seal.

To accent the drawers we added wood escutcheons painted with Copper Pearl Accents and used Pitch Black Glaze to age the copper.  Cup pulls were then painted with the same Copper Pearl Accents and Pitch Black Glaze.  For the top drawer we found some knobs with a good amount of texture.  They were painted off white to match the dresser frame and then added the Copper Pearl Accents with Pitch Black Glaze.
