This vintage dresser was in rough condition when it came home. After repairing chipped and broken areas on the body, the wood was restained using General Finishes Gel Stain in Nutmeg and painted in a rich red accent color. General Finishes High Perfomance Top Coat in Matte sealed the entire piece. To add to her charm antiquing wax was applied. The mirror was primed and painted on the back side with chalkboard paint to make a reversible mirror/chalkboard so the Lady in Red could be used traditionally, as a buffet or as a entryway table.
