Turquoise Bow Front Dresser

I bought this dresser in pieces at an auction. I had no idea if all the pieces were there when I brought it home.  I started assembling the bits and found that it was indeed all there!  I sanded all the pieces down with a rough grit sandpaper.  I cleaned all the sanding dust off with a slightly damp rag.  I put the drawers and body back together over several days.  After all the pieces were back together, I painted everything with a primer coat and let it dry.  I then painted the dresser with my signature turquoise paint color.  While that was drying, I painted the original hardware with oil rubbed bronze spray paint.  I then distressed the edges lightly and added two coats of polyacrylic for protection.  It was totally worth the work as this is my favorite piece by far!

 

The Ugly Before

Finished Project

I’m in my mid 40’s, mom to one grown daughter, Katelyn, and a grandson, Dawson. He is the light of my life!! I am with the man of my dreams and he spoils me, as well as helping along with the furniture when I need help moving things in and out. My other hobbies include photography, scrap booking, reading and of course, decorating my home! My days find me in the office, painting furniture, decorating my home and when I’m lucky, shopping!
I hope you’ll follow along with me on this journey called home.
