BEFORE MCM DRESSER BEAT UP AND ABANDONED READY FOR A MAKEOVER

Welcome back my Beauties!
Long time to see.
Time seems to go faster and faster and I think I am staying ahead of the game and then I realize I haven't posted in a while.
So since I had a second to breathe I thought I would quick put up one of the pieces I worked on this summer.
This big ole beauty!
Now I have had this dresser for over 2 years.
I don't know why I waited so long to work on it; but I think I just didn't know how I wanted to work with the style of the piece and instead of forcing it, I let it sit until I felt inspired!
I loved the lines of it but it was in pretty terrible shape.

BEFORE MCM DRESSER BEAT UP AND ABANDONED READY FOR A MAKEOVER
You can see here the top was pretty beat up and the middle drawers were gouged and missing hardware.
It was at this point I decided how I wanted to update this dresser.
I wanted to keep all the hardware so I decided to fill the extra holes on the middle drawers and space out the remaining hardware.

For the hardware I cleaned it all and then used Rustoleums Gold spray paint to give it a clean and shiny finish.

For the base I wanted to work with the tone of the wood.
I was planning on keeping the wood tone on some of the drawers and just cleaning them up really well and using a litte Restore a finish. 
The Persian Blue Milk Paint by General Finishes worked perfectly to accent the wood.

I sanded the base and the middle drawers after filling the extra holes and wiped it all down and then gave it two coats of the paint.
Once it was dry I just added the old hardware back on.

I love how the hardware and the warm wood tones  play off the Persian blue paint.

I am so glad I waited to be inspired on this piece.
I don't think it would have turned out as well as I rushed it.
