I purchased this dresser from a friend. Her grandfather had built it himself, many, many years ago. It is one solid piece of furniture!!! About a decade ago, she decided to "crackle" the finish and paint it in a peach color. That is how it looked when I rescued it.
I decided to keep the crackle, instead of stripping the piece, and just "go with it".
Painting over the crackle with Milk Paint and Chalk Paint, and blending colors, then adding a Brown Glaze, I was able to see this amazing piece of furniture transform into a beautiful work of art. I replaced the hardware and this beauty was sold and out the door before I could post she was for sale.
