Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
I've been wanting to do a completely natural dresser for a while now. And I chose this one hoping that the design on the dresser was actually in the wood. The wood was heavy enough that it could have been oak, but you never truly know till you strip it down right?
Well I was wrong..Sometimes I want things so much I don't want to believe it might not turn out to be what I had hoped for.
And sometimes I have to give up my wants for something equally as beautiful.
This is one of those times.
I did my magic. Removed the pulls and treated them with a flat black as I think that always looks great against an antique piece.
The wood came up beautifully!
Someone decided to remove the lock though. I can never figure that one out. Just take away the key if you don't want it locked. I didn't fill it in, just in case someone came across a lock for it.
My "natural" instinct has been appeased. I'm happy, and ready for paint again...lol
