ASCP Three Drawer Dresser

The back wall of our family room needed some "sprucing up". I had painted an old dresser purchased at an estate sale. The dresser was brown and I did not take before the time I had 3 days to paint 10 pieces of furniture for the Fancy Flea. I was in panic mode, not blog was as brown as the school desk chair on the marble top....just use your imagination.

The suitcase is another project completed in March. I used a bag of cancelled postage stamps purchased along the Seine River in Paris, France. The tag says "luggage, $30, stamps $35, 8 hrs. of Modge Podge $10, trip to Paris=PRICELESS! Yes, I am selling it for $75. It will be available at the Fancy Flea, Plant City, Florida-the first Sat. in Nov. 2013. ($5 admission fee to craft fair)

Rag Ann has the perfect happy face. I had a collection in my daughter's room when she was small. She is a red-head also.

The old school chair and painted oil can came from a craft fair in Gatlinburg, TN years ago.

I threw in the mailbox to see if you are paying attention....Mrs. Johnson's mailbox was painted years ago......she is returning the box for recycle....I will need to remove her name unless another Mrs. Johnson wants to claim it......

I perfected the apple years ago when I painted so many teacher back to the dresser.....

Two coats of ASCP in Paris grey followed by clear wax. I wanted the dark wax, but my daughter talked me into leaving it alone, and frankly I was too tired to do otherwise. I have grown to like it. Love the oak/acorn drawer pulls....the marble top is stained in a few has true grit and real character!

I think it needs a plant, but there is no light in this back corner.....not sure anything would survive.
Do you have any suggestions?

I enjoy your comments, so take a second and leave one if you choose.

  1. What a fabulous cabinet / chest of drawers. I love the moulding details. Victorians used to grow Aspidistra's for dark corners - perhaps that will grow or a large lamp will light up that corner.
