This waterfall style dresser was worn and drab but had good bones made of solid wood. To start the makeover process on this dresser the entire piece was primed to seal in the dark tannins from the original wood colour and prevent future staining or discolouration. The dresser was then base coated in a light greige. Sculpture clay was added and hand carved to transform the edging to replicate tree trunks. Additional details were added using a combination of moulds and hand carving to create a combination of birds and branches reaching across the drawer fronts.
The entire piece was then coated again in the greige colour and treated in a dark brown wash to highlight the accents in the mouldings. A third layer of white wash was added to create even more depth and wood tone.
The top and sides of the piece were painted, dark washed, textured with a patterned roller and white washed with more texture. The entire piece was then sealed and additional detailing was added to the mouldings using black wax.
The original hardware was updated from a damaged brass to an oil rubbed bronze.
The drawers interiours were refreshed with a good cleaning and sanding and then hand rubbed with a scented wood wax to moisturize and protect the wood for years to come. The drawer slides were cleaned and waxed for easy gliding.
**The exteriour of this cabinet was sealed with 3 coats of a highly durable urethane/acrylic topcoat in a "Flat" sheen., durable enough for use in high traffic areas.
