My Latest Re-creation in Chippy Grey...

I fell in love with this dresser the minute I saw it. It's got such cute personality, even though it was in really rough shape... Chipped veneer everywhere, wonky drawers that were coming apart... Nothing I haven't seen before though, and I felt up to the challenge. OHTF has been so busy lately, he hasn't been able to help with any repairs, and I was confident I could handle this one by myself...

I decided to work with the imperfections and enhance the chips rather than hide them... So a chippy paint job in a pale grey was the answer... finished with clear and dark wax to a smooth sheen.

I went ahead and painted the drawers inside and out, and lined the bottoms with contact paper...

The original pulls were... perfection! So of course, they went right back on...

Now this silver fox is as good as new again! What a fun project! What do you think? :)

This piece is now SOLD.

And this is what OHTF has been up to... a triplex park model hunting cabin destined for Canada...
Very cool, huh?
