And on the 7th day she rested..................

John worked for 2 hours sanding the top of this vintage dresser - but here she is
All done....................and ready to go


Before


After

I thought stripes would look to busy on all the drawers so decided
to only do the 2 top ones for a little extra detail



love the details on the bottom


I " wrapped " the stripes around the perimeter of the drawers

I have never worked on a piece this solid - this will last another 200 years, definitely!

And with that I am taking a day off - nary a paint brush or sand paper - or tape will
touch my fingers for the next 24 hours..................
It's so bloody humid here that I'm sure had I used any other paint than ASCP it would
still be wet - but even with these extremely high temperatures the drying time was the same
as always - 1 hour - amazing!
Old White- Paris Grey - ASCP

    Rest...and stay cool! The humidity here is terrible too but not as bad as Houston or New Orleans.
