Classy and Fun!

I didn't plan on buying this dresser. I stumbled upon it quite by accident.
I found a gorgeous antique bedroom set that I wanted on Craigslist,
and when I went to see it, and began negotiating on the price, the woman said she would
throw this dresser in with the lot.
How could I pass that up?
I'm sorry to say I have no "before" photo, but here are a few of the finished product...

I stained the top and painted the rest in Country Grey by Annie Sloan.
Then finished with both clear and dark wax.
The pulls have a bit of a shimmer to them, and really add a touch of class.
This piece is now SOLD.

Imagine the Possibilities...

Wow! It's been a while since I've updated the blog... Not that I haven't been working on furniture, I have. I've been trying to clear out my garage and basement. I'm sure a garage sale will be held in the very near future. So many projects I'm just not getting to... I think hoarding all this furniture is making me fat. Ha ha! Seriously, does this hutch make my butt look big? Anyhow, here is the latest makeover...

This dresser was given to me by a friend, and honestly, I was tempted to sell it as it was. Someone put a lot of work into this finish, and I'm sure someone else would love it... but I couldn't let it leave my hands without  "Danielle-ifying" it just a bit. It wasn't my style, and I could just IMAGINE the possibilities... :) So here is the AFTER:

From the very start I thought it needed feet... and cup pulls... and Graphite paint...

I'm so pleased with the result! What do you think?

This piece is for sale, and will be available to see in person at my new show room location...
Yep, that's right. I'm moving a large amount of furniture and other uniquities into a beautiful timber frame building on highway 20, between Rigby and Rexburg. I haven't decided on set hours yet, so I will be open by appointment for a while. There is a lot of room for other vendors as well... contact me if you're interested. :):):)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
