MCM Glory

By Tracey M., Owner/Upcycler at Red Geranium Restorations in Gower, MO.

This MCM dresser went from being an outcast to the star of the show!  The dresser was sanded and stained with both Minwax Special Walnut and Rustoleum Dark Walnut.  The drawers were painted with Behr Ultra Pure White made into chalk paint.  The entire piece was given three coats of General Finishes High Performance Top Coat Satin with an additional three coats added to the top for extra durability.  The boring, round hardware was replaced with sleek, chrome hardware, enhancing the same sleekness of the piece itself.  It really went from boring to glorious!
