Hi Everyone, I wanted to pop in and show you a dresser that I refinished. That's right...... a piece of furniture. No paper included in this post. (wink)
Anyone that knows me, knows that I love anything vintage. I have this dresser that came from my great grandmother's house that I've been using in our guest room. I recently re-decorated the guest room in warm floral tones with lots of color. I felt that the black dresser, whose finish was not in great condition, needed a little "pick-me-up".
Here's the dresser in its original condition. I had already pulled the knobs off when I took the picture and washed it down with plain water and then let it dry. As you can see the finish is a little rough. The top had gobs of something mysterious stuck all over it. I sanded that down enough to make it smooth.
I then gave it a light sanding, distressing the edges and random places to make it look like the paint has rubbed off. This could have been a good place to stop but I found these rub on transfers one day when I was scrolling at Scrapbook.com and just had to try them.
I started by adding the Flower Collector transfer by Re-Design. It has a wonderful vintage advertising look. It took lots of rubbing but it transferred beautifully. I then added one of the flower transfers from The Flower Fields. This came with two transfers, so I still have one left that I can use on a different project or I can cut it and use individual flowers on other projects as well.
I hope you'll check out Scrapbook.com. They have so much more than just paper crafting supplies. You never know what you'll find.
Thanks for stopping by!
