Old Mustard Drawers


Well I'm back after a very hectic month as my Mother went in the hospital for major surgery and Ive been helping her with her recovery. I'm "VERY" pleased to introduce my latest find, a five dollar find at a garage sale!I loaded that sucker up into my van and could hardly wait to get into my garage to start the make-over process, muhahahahaha......
First things first I had to vacuum all the cobwebs out then I made my trusty chalk paint and went to town painting to my hearts content. When it came time to put a few coats of wax on I decided to add some dark walnut gel stain to my paste wax as I only had the light wax. Much to my surprise it turned out beautifully!So check out my SWEET transformation...

Why does no one around here own and get rid of those cool curvy dressers? I just don't get it. We never seem to have the quality stuff here. Well, I'll just have to enjoy seeing what you did, and since it's so beautiful, that works because I can enjoy it without doing the work! Thanks,
Liz

5 Bucks??!! How do you guys find deals like this??? Wow. Love the color. Turned out sooooo nice.

I hope your mom has a quick recovery.

I can't believe that was a $5 score...for real? You did a beautiful job transforming it.

Megan @ Apple House Revival said...

This is amazingly beautiful. You did a wonderful job. The grain on the piece is incredible too. Nice work preserving that on the top.

I love this. And the great contrast/complement with the rug. Michele

Evelyn said...

What a great find! I love the effect of the walnut stain on the top and drawer pulls. It works so well with the mustard color. Super save of a classic piece.
Thank you for sharing at Freedom Fridays.

Glad your mom is doing better:)

Such a beautiful little dresser, the yellow goes great with that color stain.

Shanda Davidson said...

I love this color! What is it? I saw this on MMS's FFF and am looking for a color for my dresser (it's #91 on FFF). If you have a suggestion, please share!

Little Miss Maggie said...

I'm so glad you kept the top wood. I love the grain on that piece, however, there is something about vintage furniture that when it's painted it takes on a whole new persona. Beautiful job and I love the paint color you chose.

Patricia said...

The paint color is fabulous! It goes great with the top stain. Awesome job, you are quite talented Deidre

Stacey said...
