Dresser Found on Side of Road

This dresser was thrown out and my neighbors saw it and told me about it since I love turning an old peice of furniture into something beautiful. It was dirty. Had been out in the weather and had lots of different colors of paint on it. It is solid mahogany from the Continental Furniture Co founded in 1901. Annie Sloan here I come.

bolts where used for knobs. Lots of patching, scraping and sanding. Before pic of drawers
I decided on Annie Sloans Coco. Knobs from Hobby Lobby - before all of the bad publicity!
I decided to do some stripes.
Then some stenciling.
Almost finished. Can't decided what to put on 2nd drawer. Perhaps Ooh La La. What do you think?
