Cara's Dresser

This was a commission piece, which I just fell in love with!  Cara looked through my portfolio, told me which pieces she liked, and what colors she wanted and this was the result.  Isn't it beautiful?

The drawers are painted in my favorite white, BEHR's Magnolia Blossom.  Then lightly distressed and finished off with a very slightly tinted wax.

The body and the knobs are a teal color that was probably the prettiest oops color I've ever picked up.  I had a gallon of it, but when that's gone I'll likely have to go have it color matched I love it so much.

On the two small top drawers I used some classic glass knobs.  

The top was stripped and stained with a single application of Minwax's Dark Walnut, which showed up lighter than normal on this piece, but I liked it.  Of course I finished it off with some tinted wax and gave it a good buffing to get that aged gleam we all love so much.
