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

Fun Fusion Azure Chair


This solid wood chair in its classic square structure was calling for something fun to give it some pizzaz. Fusion Mineral Paint's beautiful color called azure fit this bill. First step was to power sand the chair to smooth the aging shellac finish and drip areas. note- Whatever shows unpainted will show even more when painted. Once sanded it was given a good cleaning and left to dry.


Fusion Mineral Paint goes on so smoothly especially when using a good synthetic brush. I distressed the edges between and after the second coat. Minimal distressing gives furniture a wee bit of forgiveness when the legs and edges get banged during use. I also sanded with a sanding sponge between coats and after too to just smooth the all in one paint to a satiny smooth feel.
