Red and Rustic!
I have been all over the place in the past week, have picked up some great pieces of furniture and have worked hard to get it all done before we head out on vacation.
I'm really hoping to finish up that desk in the next couple of days. Didn't see the desk? Check it out
HERE You have to scroll down past the yellow dresser.
Last week I picked up a nasty dresser. The bones were good but it was in rough shape.
I took this picture after I had ripped off the back. Someone had replaced it with tongue and groove pine. Most was loose and some was missing. I replaced it all with new material. The shelf was missing from inside the doors and all the drawer slides were loose one door was ripped...in short it needed a lot of repair before I could even start to really prep it.
BUT I think it was worth it. :)
I stripped the top, sanded, stained etc and painted the base RED!
Then dry brushed it in order to give it a real rustic feel. :)
Doesn't it remind you of the midwest?
It's a bit dusty after the final sanding (after sealing it) I was in a hurry to head to the cottage.
Solid wood and now in wonderful shape :)
Built a new shelf :)
And ready for a new home!
Now to get back to that desk.
It's almost ready for paint!
