Grey is the New White

Step 1. Find old dresser
Step 2. Remove hardware, sand and clean it.
Step 3. Paint it so it look new again.
Step 4. Sand and age it so it looks old.


mmmm doesn't seem quite right but hey that's what I do.  (For those of you wondering the colors are Yellowstone and graceful grey by BEHR)

  8. I have a dresser just like that. It was our first piece of furniture when we married 39 years ago ( a gift from my grandfather, the antique dealer) and was painted with glossy white enamel. My husband spent hours stripping it to its natural wood. I think if would be divorce court if I painted it. But I have lots of other pieces that have been on the other side of my brush, and they look great!
