This is the first of the pieces I mentioned in my previous post! I absolutely adore the set and it has been a real treat to refinish!
For this piece, I gave everything a good light sand with the orbital, the old finish came off very easily and it was much more effortless than I anticipated!
I didn't worry about some of the dings in the finish as I feel it adds some character and it reflects the history that the set had.
I opted for a soft blue for this, I am loving everything blue at the moment.
I used some of the vintage Eaton's wallpaper I have in the top drawer. This was the best $1.50 I think I have ever spent. Such a cool, vintage find.
I kept the original pulls on the top drawer, but painted them out to match the new larger knobs I put on the dresser.
I used a custom chalkpaint on this beauty, sanding between coats. I opted to seal with a satin sheen polyacrylic instead of wax, and I love the result!
How cute are the original casters wheels.
And, the before!
