Empire Dresser Make Over

Good Morning my Beauties...Just a quick makeover post for you!
I did this a while back...LIKE before SNOW!!!
But have just now gotten a chance to show you.

I got this gorgeous dresser at Goodwill awhile back..I loved it..
But the top and sides were in TERRIBLE condition.

I had a few people online TELL me not to paint it..but they didn't see all this.
I have refinished a lot of furniture and when you see those STAINS...they go ALL THE WAY THROUGH...there is no sanding them out...

And its hard to see from this picture but parts of the veneer were actually MISSING
from the legs.
So I sanded them down smooth.

Then I got out my smokey mountain CeCe Caldwells paint
and started painting.

I waxed and buffed her up and love how the distressing showed through.

To satisfy myself and the fellow wood lovers out there.I left the drawers as is.The drawers if you can believe it were in perfect condition. 
A marriage of Paint and Wood....

I am so Happy with how it turned out.
Unfortunately when I took this picture we were in the midst's of all clouds all the time,
SO this is as good as it gets!
I hope you enjoyed this little makeover!
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
