When I daw this sweet little maple dresser I instantly thought baby/child's room as it was the perfect size. It would be the right height for a change table too making it even more multi purpose. And I envisioned a fun turquoise color, excellent for either a girl or boy.
The solid maple top had a crackling factory finish that required a stripper to remove then more sanding to bring back to the raw wood state.
then scrape off the old shellac finish and sand well
I then used Homestead House's new stain and finishing oil all in one in natural to enhance and seal this beautiful wood. Three coats gently sanded with 0000 steel wool between coats gave it the perfect finish. I LOVE this product, honestly it is so easy to apply, has no brush strokes or chemical smells and gives a soft matte sheen.
A couple coats of Fusion Mineral Paint
in the gorgeous azure blue color and this little beauty began to shine
I decided to paint the original square mirror too as it tilts, is removable option but super cute and in excellent condition
The original hardware was thin and just not what I was wanting but I did have 6 handles on hand to swap them out for. I like the variation in colors and the size for the dresser.
I am excited for someone special to add this to their bedroom but it would even be fun in an entry way to catch keys, hold mitts and scarves and check yourself before heading out the door.
I have received product as a brand blog rep in exchange for this post, but ALL the opinions are entirely MY own. This post contains sponsored links for Fusion Mineral Paint & Homestead House Paint Co.
