Antique Dresser with layers of color and texture

I scored this antique dresser from an estate sale for an elderly German lady. She used it to store linens.
I think it saw allot more use before that duty though ;)

The top drawer for sure had wore a deep groove in the runner rail, I refilled with wood filler and sanded smooth once dry After repairs my first task is a deep clean especially on these old pieces. It was hand scrubbed with warm water, soap and some TSP and hosed till water runs clear then left overnight to dry.

Seeing it had lots of wear I choose a finish that would be in keeping with the age yet work with the years of service. Fusion Mineral Paint in coal black was mixed with their fresco for a textured paint and it was applied by brush in a random pattern all over the drawers and body.

Next layer once dry was Fusion Mineral Paint's little lamb and fresco

and again randomly applied by brush


I wish I knew the code for this dresser stamped on the back

Fusion champlain dresser turned sideboard love


Everyone loves color but for large investment pieces I usually choose a timeless neutral. This very large but solidly made oak dresser is made to last but the finish was dated. Champlain to the rescue, it took the dresser from dated to a statement!




dark wax was added to give added dimension and definition to all the great details





This statement piece sold in about half an hour of posting and is now serving as an amazing sideboard in a fabulous home where it provides loads of display area and storage for the family. Thinking outside the box for a pieces purpose and refreshing it in a new amazing color can give so many pieces you may have new meaning and use. Check out Fusion Mineral Paint for a selection of fantastic colors to choose from.
