Saved from the Landfill

This old oak veneer waterfall style dresser had definitely seen better days.  It was on it's way to the landfill when we saved it.  This piece called for something to tone down the yellow of the oak.  After some major repairs we prepped it for Candlelight gel stain down the front followed by Lamp Black milk paint on the body.  Of course the pulls needed to be refinished black to match.  A little light distressing to add a character, then everything got a final coat of High Performance Poly in flat.  That combination made a striking finished piece.
