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 Fresco


Fusion Mineral Paint has a new product to add texture and dimension to your décor called fresco.

Fresco?.. old world plaster look is what I think of when I saw it. I needed just the right piece for my vision so when these very simple styled end tables came along I decided to try this new product on them.

first I gave the tables a coat of little piggy in a messy pattern

then it was time to mix up the fresco powder and paint, I went 1:1 with newly released lichen


and used the same messy pattern application


when dry I put on a coat of casement


then sanded it down to reveal the dimension and colors
  and to give yet even more dimension and some added durability seeing they will be used more, I chose antiquing top coat and applied 2 coats


 here it is, very old world looking right?


a bit more close up


and here they are both together for their photo shoot
