Hi everyone! Hope you had a great week-end. My sweet daughter and I hit some pretty good garage sales on Friday; I’ll show you what I bought tomorrow. Saturday we had lunch with sweet friends, including one visiting all the way from South Carolina. I also had the chance to put the finishing touches on a small dresser I’ve been working on for a while now. Would you like to see it?
I painted it the same color that I painted the base of my clock-face side table last week. It’s a nice taupe color that I picked up a quart of at a garage sale for a dollar.
Here’s the before shot–not terrible, but you would certainly need the right room for this version, right? Made of solid wood by a novice cabinet maker (maybe in high school shop class), I decided for $5.00, I would bring it home and give it a well-deserved makeover.
I unearthed six, matching wooden knobs from my cabinet of curiosities, which holds all manner of spare parts–crystals, watch bands, hooks, zinc lids–and other necessaries, like labels, seal-able bags, tags, and more. They received two coats of acrylic craft paint followed by one coat of paste wax.
I loved the look of the white knobs against the taupe paint and decided to add a white decoration of some kind to the top drawer. I used a combination of two stencils that I just recently purchased at a garage sale for just a dollar.
I’ll be bringing it up to my booth at The Gristmill Antique Center this week.
