Lovely in green

As promised here is the ginormous piece I have been working on this week.  This was a fun dresser, lots of little details and I love the color I mixed.  It's kind of a green/gray color mixed from various paints I had laying around.
Here is the before
After


I used some old hardware from another piece, and spray painted it oil rubbed bronze.  Sanded and stained the top dark walnut.  Distressed the edges and rubbed in a dark glaze. 
So there you have it, my hard work for all to see.  I hope you enjoy it!

  13. Ah dang it! I was going to ask what paint color you used but it's a modge podge, it looks really really great. I'm doing the same thing with a dresser I got for $25. The top was laminate so I busted it off and am building a new one out of planks, and also plan to do the dark stain on top. Love it.

  50. You certainly started with some great "bones" on that dresser. And it looks great now. I like the mix of the stained top with the rest of it painted. Just visiting your site for the first time (caught you on a link party today), and want to compliment you for lots of fine furniture re-dos.
