Vintage Dresser Makeover

Meet Chloe...


Isn't she magnificent?  

I love her curvy shape...and her little short stubby, curvy legs...and the wheels...swoon!


The moment I laid eyes on her in all her crusty, nasty and peeling state, I knew that she was a diamond just waiting to shine!


And shine she does!

Just check out her top!  Don't you want one just like that?


And her sweet little porcelain knob.


And all her scrolly detail work...

Be still my heart...


(please ignore the streaked mirror...we're just going to pretend those aren't there....em kay pumpkin?!)

This piece is for sale on Craigslist - if interested email me or click here.

The 411:

Stain - Minwax in Special Walnut

Paint - Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White

Clear Coat used on stained wood - Sherwin Williams Wood Classics in Gloss

Wax used on painted wood - Annie Sloan Clear Wax

Hardware - All original cleaned with Brasso except top middle row - Porcelain knob is from Hobby Lobby

    1. I want to blame it on by dog for eating it...or that it flew out my car window...on anyone but ME for accidentally deleting it off my camera before downloading it! I am trying to get a copy for the person that sold it to me...If I succeed, I will update this post with it :)

      *Hugs*

  13. That looks fantastic! I have thought about doing this exact same thing (seriously, same stain and paint) to my husband's chest of drawers. I am pinning this for future inspiration for the chest!

  15. This does not make sense to take chances when contemplating getting a sizegenetics. You will want to don't forget that you choose and get the most beneficial sizegenetics it requires also need make sure that these person who offers you this sizegenetics is someone who is honest, one who will be trusted and one who should be discreet. Confirm check that make are someone who you cannot help but like performing on you on top of that. There are a lot profiles on the web of gay men who perform these tasks. You can still take your pick out of the very best as soon as you go online to a new site that offers a great service through a reliable and discreet agency.
