Mums very old dresser getting a new outfit
Off to mums on a cold but bright Sunday afternoon. Mum has had this dresser from when I was young. My instructions was to turn it into an antique, shabby chic statement piece… Yay my favorite painting technique. So here we go. The dresser is in excellent condition and the sanding was easy.
After sanding I brushed it down and gave it a good wipe down with sugar soap and water.
I primed the surface with a waterbourne sealer and filled little dinges with filler, left it for 2hrs and gave a light sanding. Its winter here in Auckland and very damp and cold. Paint needs tempertures higher then 10degrees to cure so in she came into mums rumpus room.
One coat of wheatfield white and already a brighter and fresher look. Watch this space for the finish tomorrow… cant wait to antique …
