Wow, this one took some help from the troops! I actually had my sister and one of my besties to help with the details on these drawers. It was a little intimidating at first but when I saw it coming together I was really excited to see the final product. Another venture out into the country (free of meth labs this time;) led me to this not so pretty orangy 70's dresser. Super nice family had been using it to store 'stuff' in it and I was really pumped to get it home and start the tedious task of working on those frenchy swirls. Is there anything more dramatic than graphite and old white together..I think NOT! Took it up to my booth on Saturday and it was gone on Sunday. It is going in to a little girls French themed bedroom. Love it when a piece I spend so much time on goes to the PERFECT home!
Before..excuse my scale (don't ya love it though:)
Just the right amount of distressing and dark wax
Believe it or not I found her brother on Craigslist! A 6 drawer tall boy. I tried to get it but someone beat me too it. Just as well, I have a ton of projects going on right now and don't know if I have the patience for this much detail work. Plus my back is just now recovering! I am quite sure I will be having nightmares...errr...dreams about these drawers for a long time!
Hope you like!
