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?

Let's be besties!

    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 😀

    I LOVE that hardware!! Where did find the piece? It’s beautiful! I did a dresser with the same stain on top, I love dark walnut. I hope you’re able to find a good home for it 🙂 I’m your newest member, if you have a moment I’d love it if you came and visited me at AllThatBringsJoy.blogspot.com 🙂
