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 chocolate "matching" nightstands


Who wants some more chocolate? I do! And who says night stands have to be exact to match? I don't! I took these very similar wood nightstands and turned them into his & hers matching nightstands, follow along to see how simple it was.


I found almost identical nightstand but not quite, removed the old hardware, scrubbed well, filled the hardware holes and painted 2 coats of Fusion Mineral Paint chocolate on them


I find nightstands get lots of wear on top with glasses of water being the worst culprit so I put 2 coats of Fusion Mineral Paint tough coat wipe on poly to add additional durability. New hardware was added to complete the "matching" process. Same color, same hardware... Now they are the perfect his and hers nightstands, agree?
