Step one: SCRUB WELL and let dry!
This solid wood beauty was given to me by a neighbor who was downsizing her stash, thanks Cara. I knew it had loads of possibility as I have done a few similar vintage coffee tables like it. A recent one in farmhouse whites and this one below many moons ago.

Step two: sand all the old finish off the top.

The top was sanded to bare wood using my handy dandy Dewalt orbital sander .

It was then hand sanded on the edges to remove the old finish along there as well.

My initial plan was to give the bare wood a white wash look. I chose Weatherwood Stains white maintenance oilapplied with a blue shop towel and wiped back after it soaked in for about 10 minutes. The top part has the oil applied, it hydrates the wood too. Two coats were…

Fusion new color release

As a Fusion blogger we are privy to seeing the new colors before they go public, so exciting. This fall's release has amazing colors, here are just a few.. check them out, which does your eye go to first?

After seeing an inspiration picture on Pinterest, on a very similar style dresser, I thought the new cranberry would be stunning with a gold "skirt". Once the colors actually arrived I was torn though but the pretty fall color ended up top of the list.

these were my top picks

Here is the MCM dresser, not bad from straight on

so interesting to see how blonde it really was in its glory days and how the sealer turned yellow, the handles are very MCM cool so a quick polish of the brass proved they will shine up well

but why the partial black paint down the side? So time to sand

so lets add back new legs that were lost over the years and do repairs and sanding of wood filled and rough areas and give it a thorough scrub to wash away the years of gathered dust

the finish was super smooth so to be sure I wiped on a layer of Fusion Ultra Grip for great adhesion

time to get the gold bottom on the base

and the bottom drawer

 as well as the new legs (disposable spray booths come in all sizes)

and while the many layers of gold dried I got started with the gorgeous cranberry color

 and create the transition line

 the hardware was polished and the wood backings painted, the solid construction has great dove tail drawers but what could this small solid ledge be in the top drawer??

I have received product in exchange for this post, but ALL the opinions are entirely MY own.  This post contains sponsored links for Fusion Mineral Paint
