WHAT A TRANSFORMATION!

I am so glad I got a chance to transform this beautiful antique dresser for my friend.  It was her grandmothers and although she loved it and it held sentimental value, she wanted it to fit in with her own decor.

Originally I was going to spray the entire piece in this pretty shade of purple.  The old lacquer was really crackled and I wanted a smooth finish at least on the top surface, so I decided to strip it, which revealed a beautiful top that I didn't want to cover.  So I ended up staining the top and just painting the base.


Here is the before shot, pretty, but not her style.
