Or rather, I DID have a before but I have no idea what I did with it..................so close your eyes and imagine.
The dresser had been painted black many many years ago ( and resided at my daughters ) but it was chipping everywhere ( and drove me crazy every time I saw it to be honest with you because it wasn't that chippy perfection - instead it looked like it needed a good overhaul ) I kept offering to paint it for her but the timing was never right - until one day she asked if I wanted it............
YES PLEASE !!!
With 12 drawers I most definitely wanted it !
The black undercoat was perfect for distressing actually
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint ( pure white )
This piece has such great edges to do a little sanding on -
It's sitting in my ( enclosed ) porch until I can get my Son and Son in Law over at the same time - this things a beast - heavier then any dresser I've worked on before I think - and it needs to go upstairs in my bedroom where it most definitely belongs................
Originally I thought I'd use it for the downstairs bathroom vanity - but it's a few inches too long for the space
So the one in my bedroom now will be brought downstairs to use as a vanity instead
John says - It's like musical chairs and dressers and armoires and desks in this damn house .......................
Suzan says - But this one will work much better in our room - it has more drawers
John says - YOU HAVE BOTH GUEST ROOM DRESSERS FILLED TO THE BRIM - AS WELL AS OUR BEDROOM - HOW MANY DRAWERS DO YOU NEED EXACTLY????????
Suzan says - Relax - stop getting yours in a twist already.
Ok - have to start that dining set now - ( there's 2 complete dining room sets in the dining room - you don't want to hear the conversation about that - trust me )
Or that I desperately want to keep the new one I just bought and sell the old one - which John still likes
( I'm at the point where I'm thinking he's just saying he likes it to spite me ).
And thankfully the BEFORE shots are safe and sound on those pieces - so you won't just be left with only an after !
This enclosed porch has 2 identical sides on either side of the front door - wonder what else I can fit on the other side - perhaps a dining room set? LOL !!!
Not ideal - but at least it's out of the line of fire !
Have a wonderful day everyone !Hugs,
