This little dresser and I did not start out on good terms...at all. Do you re-finishers out there ever have pieces like this? It just took me forever to get it done...
You can spot some issues...paint needs to be stripped and the mahogany stain is hard to paint over, unless you use black. I had already decided I wanted to try COCO ( AS chalk paint) and Old White...so at it I went...
After stripping and sanding the top, I did paint it, but it took way more coats than usual because the "red" in Mahogany kept coming thru the paint...Even though I was using Chalk Paint which usually covers well in only 1 coat... ( mu patience was wearing thin.) I think I was having "one of those days" when I just wanted to get something accomplished!
But after several coats of paint and dark wax I think she turned out pretty good!
Thankfully, It's not got a red based stain on it!
Detail. Up close.
Overall, I'm pleased...but did I mention I have her twin dresser also???
She looks completely different! I went for some color...I'll post that saga soon!
