Classic Black Antique Dresser
A childhood friend brought her Grandma's antique dresser to me for a reloving. Growing up, it was never a favorite of hers but once it was passed on to her she did not want to throw it out and thought perhaps we could make it pretty. I loved it from first sight and knew it could be made gorgeous.
I went with classic black as my color choice. She had loved this dresser I did for my middle daughter so felt it would be the right pick.
As per my usual look I wanted to keep the wood top stained. I started this process with a thick cot of paint stripper and a few different grits of sandpaper to bring it back to the natural wood. A good scrub for everything and let dry.
All the painted areas were given a good coat of Homestead House black furniture wax to deepen the color and add a old fashioned wax sheen to the stunning dresser.
