Here's a fun idea
for a furniture redo.
Megan inherited an old dresser from Grandma
and cut it down to coffee table size.
The wood was stripped down to it's natural state.
After applying some Early American stain,
I ran a black glaze along the edge.
Then for the worn white look,
I used vaseline on the edges for a paint resist.
After the white paint dries, sand the edges.
Now you have the farmhouse style
combining chippy white and natural wood.
I love the idea of finding ways
to make Grandma's old furniture
updated and functional.
Now if you see an old dresser with drawers missing
or heavy water damage on the bottom,
remember there is still hope for restoration!
