Pictures speak a thousand words:
We've seen this style in thrift stores, Craigslist, yard sales, etc. They are great for storage, well made, but so dated looking.
I stripped the top and found a gorgeous solid cherry top (no veneer). Some new knobs, Old White and a custom mix with Duck Egg as the base....
When I replaced the old fashioned, "Bat Wing" styled hardware, I needed to fill in all of the holes of the top drawers so I could center the pulls. For some reason, it took me about 4 coats of filler to get the holes perfectly smooth, filled in and no evidence of previous pulls. So I'll ask you, how many 'fills' does it take you to get a hole completely filled and smooth? Any tips on expediting the process would be greatly appreciated! I got to the point of thinking "I'm never replacing hardware again!", but that didn't last long!
I also thought it needed a little 'somethin' somethin'" to sweeten it up, so I added an applique on one drawer.
And one quick shot of the gorgeous refinished top:
I'm not usually a two tone painter, but I love the Old White & Duck Egg combo!
Thanks for stopping by!
