A friend gave me a head's up that this little chest was sitting at Goodwill last weekend.
Getting furniture at Goodwill here is a game, you have to play it just right. Well, thanks to the tip I won! There was nothing super special about this dresser. It had a terrible veneer top and was an awful brown, but there were good bones. And I love me a two-tone piece, so this seemed the perfect candidate!
Ahhh, much better. I used a mix of blue and dark gray to get the body of the piece, and antique white for the drawers.
I glazed this one with walnut stain. I don't know why I did it that way, but I am happy with how it looks. A good overall antiquing. I used paste wax to seal it up.
The hardware is what makes this piece. It is rusted (looking) cast iron, it's from Hobby Lobby.
The top had a few issues and I just decided to leave it, and paint it. It is after all an old piece, it's allowed to look it's age.
This baby is for sale in the shop
