This is from the ad I saw...a whole set. Lovely!
Refinished Bedroom Furniture
Actually this is just one piece of an entire bedroom suite I am working on! Stored out in a shed, the funky, orangish oak finish...yuck! I told hubby that I wanted the whole set. He laughed, and helped load it up.
I removed the drawers, took off the hardware, and let the sanding begin! I start with a 120 grit and finish with a fine grit. I make sure I use the orbital sander so I don’t mess up the grain.
You guys know I always miss steps! I went with a custom mixed chalk paint, and went over that with a custom mixed gray glaze! I stained the tops and the drawers fronts with a custom mixed stain. If you notice the powder....the pieces had a bit of a musty smell...baking soda to the rescue!
I put the drawers in to see how it looked. I went over all the hardware with rub n buff (I love that stuff!) don’t forget to use a spray sealant in hardware though! I finished this set with General Finishes wipe on sealer.
Put the hardware back on...and look how beautiful!
I was so excited I didn’t take pictures of each piece during the process...
But look! Beautiful...we ended up keeping it all except the dresser (it wouldn’t fit in guest room).
