>Painted Dresser

>Hi Everyone

     Remember my baby dresser that I showed recently?

Circa 1969.
Hey, there are toys in here!
Gaaa!! Spider!
This is sad. Water damage to the legs.

Peeling wood.

I glued the peeling part back down and clamped it while it dried.

    After taking care of business then the fun stuff began!
In the areas where I planned to distress the paint I spraypainted in silver. I had actually found the silver paint in one of the drawers. Score!

I spray painted the whole thing in glossy black. After the paint dried I sanded the edges and corners. Doing this revealed the silver and also revealed some of the old white in places. Unintended but cool effect nonetheless. I added nickel hardware and voila.
Now she’s fit to come back in the house.
