Ok, Ok. So this is nothing new and innovative. I know I have done this look oodles of times before, but I really do love a nice mcm dresser with a cool two-toned outfit.
I sanded, primed and painted the entire body of this beauty. Because I virtually stripped most of it back to the wood, I had tons of bleedthrough!
I did a coat of Gripper, then a coat of clear shellac to block the bleeding. I then did another coat of gripper, but was still having bleed through, so I then did a coat of Zinsser BIN. I then FINALLY was able to do two coats of an off white on the sides and front, and three on the top.
The drawer facings got a light sand, and were then re-coated with gel stain in dark walnut.
And voila, another two-toned mcm gem!
Have a great week!
