1940’s Shabby Painted Dresser/Night Stand
3-parts water/1-part latex paint
I sanded the dresser to remove old grime and the stain. Then, I simply washed the solution over the wood using old T-shirt rags. To give each drawer a geometric design, I covered the fronts with painter’s tape and applied the paint (without water mixed in).
Antique Washstand / Side Table
acrylic craft paints / varathane
Heavy sanding to remove 100 years of grime and dirt was followed by a few free-hand “vine” details using acrylic craft paints. To make up for the missing marble top I coated it with many layers of varathane.
Mid-Century Breakfront China Cabinet
milk paint / antiquing wax
This breakfront china cabinet was lightly sanded with 220 grit, wiped down and painted Miss Mustard Seed Linen and Lucketts Green (interior) milk paint, followed up with MMS Antiquing Wax. It now houses craft supplies.
