I found this little oak dresser about a month ago. It is really very, very old and a true vintage find. What was funny about it was the very fancy gold drawer pulls and keyholes on each drawer. I have never seen such glam on an old oak piece!
I decided to have fun. I first applied a coat of General Finishes Somerset Gold as a base color. I then applied a coat of Annie Sloan Graphite and decided to break out my stencils. I used Louis Blue with a pretty flower pattern. The very gold pulls were toned down with a touch of Graphite and the gold accents tied it all together. The whole piece was then heavily distressed to give it back its age and give it true farmhouse vibe. I love how the distressing really highlights the old paneled sides. The drawers were lined in blue striped paper and the whole piece was sealed with Artisan Enhancements clear topcoat sealer.
I just purchased the boxwood wreath last weekend. The first little bit of Christmas in my home!
