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

creating sea glass

When I saw the tutorial on Fusion's Facebook page I knew I had to try this. I <3 <3 sea glass so much and I just happened to have a few jars I recently scored from the glass recycling.

yes this is what I brought home from our take it or leave it recycling table,

And I just happened to have Fusion Mineral Paint refrew blue and just a skiff of casement on hand, yeah! So with no further ado here is my take on how to make plain glass look like sea glass

and following the tutorial I created this

then added jute for a touch of rustic and bam!

my sea glass jars, perfect for votives, utensils, pencils, greenery, flowers, the list is endless!  Thank you Fusion Mineral Paint for awesome paint and tutorials!
