Stripes and Bikes

42"W x 34"H x 20"D
The second piece of the summer!  Soon the kids will go back to school and maybe I can pick up the pace.  I painted this dresser in American Paint Company's Smoke Signal and added some AS Old White to make the stripes.  The wood veneer on the top was chipping here and there and I was going to remove it, but it wasn't going anywhere.  So I filled with wood filler and was going to paint it.  The wood grain was so pretty that I just went over it with AS dark wax.  You can see where the wood filler was added, but it just give it a little more of that well loved look.  The pulls were some I ordered online several months ago and the bike knobs I found at Hobby Lobby.  It's a  perfect size to use anywhere in the house!
