This dresser, as soon as I saw it, I knew that it had to be black! A dark beauty! I’m not naturally drawn to dark pieces, but I couldn’t help my need to have this one dark.
It’s amazing what’s underneath.
Drawers before sanding
This took 60 grit scuffing with my orbital sander
The places where I wasn’t going to stain, didn’t need to be taken down to bare wood, it would just be more work that wasn’t needed.
I wanted the illusion that this piece had A separate Base. So I taped of where I wanted it to begin.
I primed 3 coats because the cherry looking stain is Always bad for bleeding.
I used zinsser shellac based primer
Country chic paint - Rocky Mountain
I did 3 coats
Added antique wax
After I added the wax I sanded with 220 grit than top coated
I’m obsessed with this hardware! I got on amazon for dirt cheap!
