Ever fall in love with a piece of furniture the minute you set your eyes on it? This was the case with this antique oak dresser. The original details on the mirror were so pretty!
I wanted to leave some of the wood so I sanded the top smoothly, but not so much that I would lose the patina on the wood. Sometimes if you sand too deep, your wood will look very white. You can see below on the bottom left that there is some dark black spots. By leaving some of the dark patches, you will get more of an aged look.
I used Minwax Special Walnut for the stain and applied three coats of Country Chic topcoat.
I finished the bottom of the dresser with Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan in Old White. I sealed it with clear soft wax and also some dark soft wax was added, focusing mostly on the details on the mirror and edges.
This is how it looked before the transformation.
