If you missed last’s week’s post, then you missed this piece I purchased off Craigslist which came with a lovely K-Swiss sticker stuck right on the top drawer. Why on Earth do people put stickers on furniture anyway? You have no idea how many stickers, pieces of tape and sticky residue from tape I have encountered since redoing furniture. Please people…don’t put stickers on your furniture. Just don’t. My favorite is when I notice a weird looking mark on a newly painted surface only to come to discover is is a piece of tape I didn’t see before I painted it. Then I have to peel it off and repaint. That’s is not fun. So anyway…this dresser was beautiful before I even touched her with a paint brush. Solid mahogany dresser…and in great shape. Some curves and lots of character! I was very happy to “win” her…that is how I am now referring to being the one to purchase her off Craigslist as competition is so tight there. It turns out many people refinish furniture like me. It is like a competition I tell ya. So when I saw this one listed, I pounced. She is just pretty as can be. I loved the hardware, too.
A win-win all around.
Here she is now:
Isn’t she stunning?
I painted her with 2 parts Luckett’s Green Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint to 1 part Boxwood.
Then sealed her up with Miss Mustard Seed Hemp Oil.
I loving the result.
She will be available for sale next week at Fresh Vintage in Strasburg if you are interested!
Update: She is SOLD!
