Next up on the makeover docket... actually this is the AFTER. Once again I got too excited and forgot to take the before shot. Just imagine dark mahogany stain and brassy handles and you get the mental picture.
It was pretty scratched up on the top and had a few dings, but it's really sturdy...and heavy. One of those where you have to take the drawers out to move it. Maybe I'm just a wimp. Anyway, she's done and can be hauled up to Jazz after I put the drawer liners in.
The color is a pale gray which I am loving right now, all shades of gray. I am working on painting a couple of other dressers and a nightstand in a darker gray and I am repainting an end table from Jazz that hasn't sold in the same gray as this dresser. It was a distressed white when we bought it and put it in Jazz but it was beginning to look grubby and was taking on a yellowish tint from it's original stain I think. So I brought it home to give it some TLC.
I am back on Auntie duty for the next 3 days then I get 6 days off. It will almost be like a vacation. If only I didn't have to get ready for our next big Jazz Sale! We're doing a Holiday Bazaar at a local church in a couple of weeks and I have some preparations to make. More painting, sanding, gluing, altering, cleaning, tagging, pricing, ironing. Yep. Almost like a vacation.
