Pretty Pink Dresser

Pretty Pink Dresser

Before and After, Furniture
Half of the BEFORE!!!
 After I finished my baby’s Dresser, my other daughter really wanted a dresser with a mirror too!  When I found this dresser I knew it was fit for a Princess!!
She even picked her colors in her words, “Mom, I want it pink, dark white, and then should we wax it?”  LOL she is a mini me in training!
I love all the fun craftsmanship of this dresser.  I painted all the details a different color to really show off the craftsmanship!
I glazed all the cracks to really bring out the fun lines.  For my glaze I used Martha Stewart’s Metallic glaze from Home Depot.  I had never used this glaze before, but I really liked it.  I used a brush and applied it to the specific area I wanted to stand out, like this leg.  Once I brushed the glaze on I wiped the excess off with a baby wipe, leaving the glaze only in the cracks!

 

Once everything was dry I sealed it all up with a Polyacrylic.  It is a more durable product, hopefully it can withstand my daughter who thinks all of our furniture is a jungle jim!
