Antique Dresser - "Jackson"

I'm SO excited about this dresser I just
finished up. I always have an idea of what
I want to do when I buy a piece of furniture, and
this one was going to be painted.
But when I saw this wood after sanding a bit,
I HAD to change my plans because it is SO pretty!

I've decided to name this piece

"Jackson"







BEFORE




Big difference, huh?!




AFTER



















$295 cash

Dimensions are: 42" long x 21" deep x 36" high

For my other friends who refinish or those who are curious:

sealed with Annie Sloan Clear Wax

Top is natural wood sealed with 2 coats of Tung Oil

Drawers are natural wood with two coats of
whitewash application in Annie Sloan French Linen
sealed with Annie Sloan Clear Wax

Knobs and Pulls were in stock at Lowe's




Just a quick reminder, I'm SO close to 500 fans on Facebook
and have promised a giveaway to all of you when we get there.
I've been in contact with some awesome people
