French Provincial Dresser Repaired and Painted.......

This one we found just totally not well cared for.  The person we got it from said he was repairing it, but gave up.  Goodness, they painted it numerous times.  When we stripped it, we found they painted over the original cream white factory paint, then painted silver over that, then blue, and then the last was black.  The veneer over it was peeled off and they applied plaster ot sheetrock over it and sealed in the middle drawers.  The top was coming aprt from the rest of it.  We where going to do this as a custom, but it she wanted a clean look and this was for a shabby chic look so we painted it now it's up for sale.  Good thing it was solid wood :) 


Here are some of the venner missing parts, plus you can see the paint colors...



more veneer pieces missing...


we took the top off, repaired what we seen was damaged....


they even painted the sides of the drawers....we stripped that also....


Now I am applying the primer....


these are the drawers after we stripped it...



Then I applied the light grey paint...


                                       

                                                      We fixed the veneer and smoothed it out....


I distressed the edges that popped out.....


found some hardware and painted them gold.....





Looks much better than before :)  Solid and sturdy!

Highboy Dresser Chest Repaired & Painted Grey....


We had this for awhile, had it for sale but noone wanted to or knew how to repair it.  I even lowered it to $20.  So we finally got around to it.  I squeezed it in with a custom order I was also working on. 


The rail in the front that holds up the top drawer was off completely...
John repaired that...


 It was missing rails on some of the drawers, 
John repaired those.  He put in wood rails to hold up the drawers and 
cut some metal ones to place under the drawers....


I sanded it down to get most all the shine and some finsih off....
then painted it grey.....a lighter grey, not to dark...



then found some handles and painted them gold....



Has a secret 3 drawer to hide stuff in.....



wouldn't even know there is a drawer there!













Here is the finished, repaired, and fully working gorgous dresser chest!
