MEET "OLD OCHRE " A VINTAGE DRESSER


PURCHASED THIS DRESSER AT A LOCAL THRIFT STORE & CAN'T WAIT TO
PAINT MY FIRST DRESSER 

LOOK WHAT NEEDS TO REPAIRED !!
DOOR SLIDES AND DOOR STOPS MISSING ON THIS GEM 

NOT LOVING THE FURNITURE REPAIR PART - MAINLY BECAUSE IT IS A HUGE LEARNING CURVE FOR ME--
WOOD GLUE , WOOD FILLER ,DRAWER SLIDES , DRAWER STOPS , AND AIR COMPRESSER NAILING WITH SOME HELP FROM MY HUSBAND 

FINALLY THE FUN PART PAINTING
ASCP OLD OCHRE  

HAND DISTRESSING IS SO MUCH FUN WITH THE RED STAIN PEAKING THROUGH !!
HANDLES ARE PAINTED WITH A NEW FINISH 

AND FINALLY HAND WAXED  FOR A SOLID FINISH

Dear Kelley!!! So excited!!!
I have not painted a dresser yet, too!!!
I keep staring at the THREE I have in my "studio" and can't decide...
And also all I can think is to paint them PARIS Grey, and add dark wax!!!
I can't get out of the greys and whites and blues at the boldest...
I can't wait to see what you are going to do with it!!!!

Hi Claudine
Sanding and sanding is what I am doing . I am not so exciting about my dresser now . I am not sure of my colour yet!!
Thanks for checking in

Kelley,
Don't you love it when this happens?! It might look lovely in an antique white with some distressing. I also love duck egg blue with dark wax! I found your blog through Claudine - I live in Vancouver and I've also recently decided to take the plunge and be a vendor at the Farmhouse Vintage Market... it will be nice to meet you both!
Cheers,
