French Provincial in Old White

This cute dresser was picked up for me by my pickers aka my parents.  :)  It didn't need too much work, I adjusted a couple of drawer guides to make the drawer fit in place and sanded down the inside of the drawers to clean them up.  Other than that I just re-stained the top in dark walnut and painted the rest in Annie Sloan's Old White, distressed, and sealed with clear wax.  I haven't seen hardware like this before, they remind me of little bows.

Mahogany Dresser in Old White

This piece was in really nice condition other than dings and scrapes.  The drawers were nice and clean and opened and closed super smoothly!  I just wiped it down some and shellacked it really well with my spray shellac to hopefully prevent any bleed through.  I didn't have any other than on the tops of the drawers and the inside of the dresser where the drawers slide in so I had to go over that again.  The top is one of the prettiest I've re-done!  I painted it in Annie Sloan's Old White, distressed, sealed with clear wax, sprayed the hardware in oil rubbed bronze, and re-stained the top in dark walnut.

Petite Black Chest

This chest of drawers matches the shorter "London" dresser in the previous post.  Both are very well made with solid wood inside and out with drawers that glide in and out smoothly.  I added Mixol a universal tint in black to the graphite paint to make it more black than charcoal.  I re-stained the top in dark walnut and changed out the pulls.

Typography Dresser

This is one of my favorites!  Love the shape and size of this dresser and the top is gorgeous!  I added mixol to the Graphite paint to make it more black than charcoal and the words in Old White.  Top has been re-stained in Minwax dark walnut.  It's a great size for any room in the house.

Empire Dresser

I painted this one in a 50/50 mix of APC Limoges and Sackcloth.  I like a lot of the colors in this brand of paint, but I find it a lot of work to sand it as smooth as I like my pieces to be!  I used my rotary sander on the drawers.  The color is a little darker than Annie Sloan's Old White and has brown undertones.  It's a really pretty neutral.  This dresser would work about anywhere in the house.  :)
