I tried to get a good picture but it was difficult...but here is the one dresser I finally started working on...I just love it..I'm undecided though how I want to do it..I almost thought I would just re-do it and put bees wax on it...but it has some spots I think I mite have to paint it white after all. It was my first plan anyways
Plus my son took off the rest of the rope pieces that went on the front. He said they were broke not realizing maybe they could have been fixed..I want to see if I could replace them..
It's one of its neat characters. maybe I could find something on line.? It's a beautiful dresser...I have a long dresser that a friend gave me...But guess what I think I have the matching one to it in my storage. I forgot my ex husband had gave it to me along time ago..but I think its the same as this...
I got the top sanded down and the one side...Then we woke up and it was raining I had it covered but not enough so me and Vee rushed out to the Garden and drug it in. So now it's sitting inside my kitchen...I hate not having a garage to work in like I had in the big house...It makes life difficult...Specially since our weather hasn't been cooperating with me.
I love this part of it...this piece is removable first time I ever saw that...It has a screw piece on the back...very unique.
I also got one small draw sanded ... I been thinking I have seen furniture painted white and the top left to do natural and that's what I'm seriously thinking for these pieces. I love the natural color of wood specially when the grain is so pretty..Another idea was to leave the two tops little drawers natural too and paint the rest in white...will see first need to finish the sanding of it...
This is nailed in the top drawer which I never seen before either...and I have seen many dressers. I wonder how old it is. It says Cavalier. I just looked online and it seems to be the brand name..but I don't see one quite like this..I will have to keep looking. Cavalier Furniture Co. It's a big company...found one site to find information on it maybe I hope.. Apparently they are noted for there Chests.
The days make no difference to me anymore...before I would look forward to Friday's but not no more..It's just another day.
WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING THIS WEEKEND...Wishing you a most enchanting lovely weekend. WITH LOVE Janice
