Welcome back my Beauties!
I can't even believe summer is coming to an end!
We have been sucking out every last second of it since we were trapped indoors for the loooong looooong winter we had here.
But don't despair, even while I have been enjoying my summer I have also been painting away.

For instance; this beautiful beat up little vintage dresser.
A friend of mine was cleaning out her mother in laws house that had passed and asked me if I wanted this.
Of course I said yes.

It had seen better days, but that also means it had been well loved.
It had done its job for the family and now it was my turn to give her a makeover that would turn heads again.
You can see from the top that it was in ok condition.
I just cleaned that up and the drawers and then got to work on the base.

I sanded and wiped down all the places I would be painting and got to work.

In between paint drying on the base I cleaned up the hardware and spray painted them to refresh them with some Rustoleum gold spray paint.
Once they were dry I put the whole thing back together again.

Look at how well that top cleaned up along with the drawer fronts.
That gorgeous finish was hiding under all that dirt and dust.

You always do such a beautiful job on your stain and paint pieces and I always enjoy the green makeovers. Very pretty! Has your friend seen her mother-in-law's old dresser transformation yet?
