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

Little Tea Pot tea party


Solid wood children's size table and chairs are hard to find it seems but when I have found some in the past there is always a line up. I actually had 2 sets last year before Christmas and just so happened to score another set this year. And I knew the perfect color for it, my new favorite of the year, little tea pot from Fusion Mineral Paint tones for tots line.


It had been stained royal and red then painted over with a light grey



but after a good sanding and scrub down it was ready to paint




 bring on my favorite color, little tea pot and gave the base 2 coats as well as both chairs


 and stained the top a dark all in one stain/poly 4 coats and walaaa
