I Did It Again!
Yes, another dresser has been transformed by decoupage.
All in all, I'm pretty happy with how she turned out. I think I'll call her 'Rose'.
I found this one on a garage sale site and it was not in the best of shape:
So, out came the sander and what did I find? Poplar, not the best wood. In case you missed it the last time...
Poplar is and inexpensive hardwood. The tell-tale green tint gives it away. It is usually painted because poplar is notorious for being 'blotchy' when stained.
If you'd like to see the last poplar dresser I found, you can click HERE.
I began this project with new napkins. That's right, the drawers are done with napkins. I have a full tutorial HERE.
In the interest of full-disclosure, this dresser started out with pink paint but it fought me every inch of the way. The final result was this chocolatey (that's a word, right?) brown with the pink showing through the distressing.
I made sure to paint the edges of the drawers to give it a 'finished' look.
Rose is going up for sale this weekend. She belongs in an old house in a bedroom with a brass bed, don't you think?
Thank you for stopping by. It's always a pleasure to have visitors at the Cottage. Have a great week!
I hope you'll pin, share, comment, and follow. If you click on those 3 little lines at the top right of the blog, you'll see where to find me!
