Hey fans, I know you’re out there, just waiting for me to post the finished Little Charcoal Dresser. Here she is in all her glory! I say that loosely because she didn’t turn out exactly as I had planned, but then, what does in this life? I was trying for a smooth, modern look, but ended up with a little more broken-in, vintage look. I’m OK with that because I think she’s charming and I hope you do to!
I’m slowly making progress on the little charcoal dresser. Still have to work on the drawers and top, but I’m getting close!
Back and sides have 2 coats of Mudpaint but the front still needs sanding and one more coat. Then it’s time for the topcoat to seal everything in.
After much searching I found this beautiful “painted arrows” paper to line the drawers at a local gift shop here in Bend.
One more “before” photo to share with you . . . this is what the drawers look like now . . . but not for long!
STAY TUNED . . . tomorrow is BAKING DAY!!! I’m really excited to use a locally made product and add my baking to it to create something refreshing and delicious!
first post…here we go!
This is my first painted furniture project for juniper & pine, which is my new business name, inspired by my favorite smells of Bend! I found this cute little dresser on craigslist and I’ve been sanding and painting for a week or so now. It’s getting a couple of coats of Mudpaint (more on this new paint company in a future post) in Charcoal, some teal faceted pulls and hopefully, a new owner who will appreciate all my efforts to save and make functional this handmade piece of furniture.
