Frenchy Dresser Makeover

I’m finished!  After much sanding and staining and priming and painting and distressing and poly-ing! I”M DONE!
Here she is BEFORE:
My first staining job! I love it!
I used Glidden Antique White in Satin for the white and Minwax Dark Walnut stain on the top. I also sprayed the hardware with Oil Rubbed Bronze. I love how it turned out.
Do you like it?

    Did you put any thing over the stain on top? Like a finish? It has more of a glossier look, which I love!

    Gorgeous, gorgeous!!! I love a painted dresser with a stained top. I’m kicking myself for not doing that with a piece I recently did. And, I’ll totally be spray painting my dresser’s hardware after seeing yours ๐Ÿ˜€
