This lovely, neutral, two-toned dresser was restored to its former beauty by Cheryl from Shab-2-Fab Crinoline, Hula Hoop, Black Wax, and Hemp Oil!
About six weeks ago a lovely woman named Jayne contacted me about refinishing her antique bedroom set. I was thrilled and immediately said yes. I decided that I’d work on it one piece at a time starting with the dresser.
The dresser arrived in pretty good condition and after a really good scrub down It was ready for paint. I had been wanting to do a two-toned piece for quite sometime and wanting to keep it as neutral as possible I decided on Crinoline and Hula Hoop, two lovely colors that could live in harmony together. Before painting I applied a standard bonding primer to lessen the amount of paint I’d need to cover up the pre-existing stain. Once the primer had dried I painted the drawers in two coats of Hula Hoop and the base in two coats of Crinoline.
I was going for a sleek look so I didn’t sand this piece. After painting I applied Country Chic Paint’s Hemp Oil and then applied Country Chic Paint’s Black Wax right over top for a beautifully waxed finish.
I found the original pulls to be in amazing shape so I simply updated them with some Rustoleum spray paint and gave the top drawers sparkly new crystal knobs.
