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 sheetrock over it and sealed in the middle drawers.  The top was coming apart from the rest of it.  We where going to do this as a custom, but 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 too.
