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

Old Fashioned milk paint quilt rack in creamy white


When I purchased this solid oak quilt rack I wanted to give it a relove in a fresh new color but keep it true to the vintage style. I chose Old Fashioned Milk Paint in light cream and snow white. Unfortunately I did not measure my mix and just went by eye to get a pretty creamy white color.


I applied 3 coats of the Old Fashioned Milk Paint creamy white sanding and distressing between each coat and sealed it with 2 coats of hemp oil, perfect results!
