Simple and Handsome Dresser Makeover

Good Morning my Beauties! I have finally got around with the busy Christmas season to
being able to show you a makeover! I did however do this one back when we still had sun and flowers. Which now are covered in lots and lots of SNOW!
If you have been keeping up whats been going on around here you will be happy to know that
Smooches the Rescue dog is doing wonderfully adjusting to her new Forever home!
If you didn't see the latest addition to our family you can see that HERE
As you can imagine having a new family member has kept me busy around here, so I have had no time to work on furniture, that along with finishing up Christmas stuff has been taking up my time.
So I will show you this Furniture makeover I did a few months ago and never got around to showing.

I had bought this handsome dresser at Goodwill. I got it for a good deal and loved the handles on
them even though they were a bit dingy.

Structurally it was in great shape and the drawers were near perfect, but the base was another story. It was gouged and scratched and the finish had seen better days.

So I decided to clean up the drawer faces and give them a nice waxing and paint the base.
I chose a custom blue that I mixed up. When it was dry I distressed just a touch
and waxed and buffed it.

Then it was time to handsome up those pulls. I just soaked them in ammonia and gave them a good scrubbing with a green scrub sponge. I love the coppery brass look it gave the patina.
When they were dry I just spray poly'd them to keep the patina.

and there you have that little Makeover.
If you have time remember there is still time to LINK UP
