Updated Dresser With Paint And Stain

I recently purchased a 4 drawer dresser off Craigslist. It was perfect for a quick makeover since it was raw wood that had never been painted or stained.

Of course I forgot to take a photo before but I love the completed piece.

I stained the top and drawer fronts with Minwax Provincial- probably my favorite color. Then Poly was applied.

The sides were painted Indigo Ink. I did make my own chalk paint and then clear waxed the painted areas. 

The color is a little darker then shows in the pictures.

I really love 2 tone furniture and think it gives a uniqueness to each piece.

I added the dresser to my booth space at The Coop Antiques along with a little Red, White and Blue.

Old Drawer Storage Shelf

Well it certainly has been a busy Spring with events and posts have been seem to be lacking lately. I Just can't seem to get in a good habit of taking pictures before projects are completed.

For this one I combined 2 old drawers from a cabinet no longer with us and made a storage shelf. This is it after it was built and before any painting.

This is a side view.

I used parts of a pallet for the legs and old banister rails in between to fill it in a little. 
The banister rails were also added across the back. 

Then it was time to paint. I wanted it to be bright and colorful.

The drawer fronts, the sides and back were painted in a aqua color and the legs and banisters were updated with white.

The drawer fronts were to plain so I added flat banisters to them.

The drawers were stained in pecan. Poly was then added.

View from the back.

Overall this was a simple build and paint project and can be used for many things.

This would be great filled with plants on a porch. It could also got in a bathroom or bedroom for storage.
As a entryway table it could collect lots of things coming in or out of the house.

Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by,
