Antique Family Dresser Gets A New Lease On Life

A had a local friend contact me about redoing her Grannie's dresser. I was so touched that she entrusted me with this task! The dresser had seen better days. It had started out in a farm house, complete with a wire bottom to keep the mice out. I kept that on--you just can't take something so unique away!

Desk Redo With General Finishes Milk Paint in Driftwood #FFFC
