Sneak peek at tomorrow's dresser reveal

I know I know, I'm taking forever on the French dresser. But tomorrow it'll be all done! I can't wait to post the after pictures and link up to some parties.

Until then, here's some a sneak peek at one of the glazed drawers with handle. I painted them in Sherwin Williams Uncertain Grey and glazed it with Minwax Dark Walnut stain. I didn't do anything to the brass handles except  clean them. They already had the distressed look I was going for (I think they were previously all white).

And to give you a hint on what I did to the top, I've talked about it in one of my last 5 posts. Have you guessed it yet???

  1. You work MUCH faster than me! LOL So far, I only have the drawers stripped and sanded.

    Lookin' good! Can't wait to see the end result!!

  2. Decoupage the old newspaper ads on top? :) Wallpaper? Fabric and glass? I have a desk and a dresser just like this and those are some of the things I have been thinking of doing. I have no idea if any of those things will work though so I'm patently waiting to see what you do. LOL

  3. Deanna! You guessed it right away! Decoupage the top with the old newspaper. I didn't just use the ads because the articles were really fun to read. Hope you like the end result! Maybe you'll try something similar :).

    Thanks for reading my posts. I love that we're all sharing experiences and getting inspiration from each other!
