A Splash of French Parfume

This vintage waterfall dresser didn't need much in the way of repairs.  After prepping this old gal for paint, she received a couple coats of Driftwood milk paint as the base.  We followed it up with a thinned coat of Antique White to give it the appearance of age.  We found an vintage French Parfume ad that would fit perfectly on the front of the dresser.  We then hand painted the details of the ad on the face of the dresser, followed by some additional distressing for an even more aged appearance.  The entire piece was sealed with High Performance Poly in Satin for protection.  The finishing touch was glass knobs for a touch of sparkle.
