About a month ago, Scott won this beautiful oak dresser for me at a local auction.
I had a really hard time trying to decide if I wanted to paint it or not.
It was simply gorgeous, just as it was.
So, I decided to have the best of both worlds.
I would paint part of it with ASCP "Old White" and add AS Dark Wax to really make those beautiful details stand out...
and I would leave the top, drawers, and sides "as is" to not insult the integrity of the fabulous wood grain.
I think I'm in love.
All it took was a little Old English Oil rubbed into the original wood, to bring it back to life.
And the original hardware painted and waxed the same
was too awesome not to use.
I think of all the pieces I've done, that this is by far my favorite.
Too bad the "Furniture Nazi",
is holding me to my promise to sell it. ;)
At least he keeps me focused on my dreams and goals, right?
Otherwise, I would have a house full of really awesome furniture.
And that would be simply horrible, right?
So, with a heavy heart... (HA HA HA)
