A bit of a re-do...

Hi everyone, I hope your already home and dry, what a night here in the NW of England....
I just popped on to show off my dresser now it's all painted up and new looking,I thought it would never get sorted, we had so many decorating problems, anyhow....done and done, hope you like as much as I...
BEFORE

AFTER..
Sorry the pic is poor, weather and all that, very dark today...

Well, it was stripped on the top only, then coated in with a colour varnish
the body was painted with Rustoleum chalk paint in Antique white, 3 coats and same again with Rustoleum finishing wax, the handles and hinges etc were buffed up with DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Champagne, so easy to use and no odour so something I could sit and do....
I can't tell you how happy I am with my old dresser, many moons ago it had a back to it, long since gone, but i think it looks good....
Thanks for the visit...
Don't forget we have a new challenge tomorrow at CraftyCatz...xxxxx
