We are back from the sunny land of Phoenix AZ and back to the rain and back to the studio. We had a wonderful trip but I actually found myself anxious to get back to work. This is what I finished today...I love this type of dresser -
nice girly shaped mirror and a great size for a bedroom or a hallway.
The drawers on this particular piece had seen better days. The previous owner seemed to have a passion for Princess Leia and it came complete with Princess Leia stickers all over the front of the drawers...
Always a favorite look! Just maybe not for this piece.
And the mirror had this permanent cloudy look that no matter what I tried wouldn't go away - have you ever seen this? What is it??!
While the mirror was off the glass shop to be repaired I sanded down the entire dresser and used a dark walnut stain on the main body and a coat of old white on the drawers followed by a light coat of dark walnut stain to tie it all together.
Knob close ups are a favorite of mine - I love the detail - it's like jewelry for furniture.
All finished and now available for purchase at
If you haven't been to The Passionate Home - you MUST go take a look - it's my favorite store in Langley and is so inspiring!
They are also - the only Annie Sloan stockist in our area! Tell them I sent you.
What are you working on this week?
And again - what happened to that mirror!?
