Monday is making an unusually late premiere for me. Perhaps it's because we had our Thanksgiving feast last night, so between all that turkey and prosecco, I was zonked [clearly a word that needs to make its way into my everyday vocabulary]. Anyway, enough about turkey and oversleeping...and onto furniture!
My turnaround on this guy was pretty quick. I opted not to paint the top, because the wood was in exceptional shape and had a nice grain and stain to it, so it seemed like a crime to cover it up.
This dresser is solid oak, so when you look closely, the grain comes through the paint a bit , which adds a nice, rustic texture.
It didn't need much distressing or sanding, since the paint penetrated the grain of the wood easily, and I thought it looked best without much fuss.
This particular dresser is unique because the former owner customized it to create a pop down drawer, allowing for this dresser to double as an entertainment center, with a space for a dvd player and cable box and whatever other electronics you may have lying around.
