This old Dresser has been re-purposed (twice) so you don't always have to keep the same look on a piece of furniture. If your like me I am always changing it with different colours/techniques etc. It is only paint so you can have different looks when you fancy a change. I have had this dresser for years and because it is so old, at the time I didn't think about taking any 'before' photos of how it was. It started off in that sort of 'yellowy pine' where it had been over varnished instead of probably using a 'bri-wax' which feeds the wood!
So.... today I am going to give you two techniques to use. These first pictures are of when I first took it from pine to my own 'French Antique Style', which is a technique I still use and like, but a change is as good as a rest - don't you think?
