Sweet Dreams are Made of This...

Can you believe I lucked upon this dresser
the mirror (all original hardware!)
AND the matching tallboy?
you can see it at Stiltskin Studios
(it's at the bottom of page 3)

My plan was to paint both pieces in ASCP's Pure
but as usual, things change
as I look at the piece

I got a little overzealous with the distressing
but after a little touch up,
it's darling

This piece has the original wood casters, too
and the mirror is dated 1933

I thought the Paris Grey and Old White
looked very soft
almost dream-like
so I didn't use dark wax
on this piece

At the last minute, I decided
to free hand something on the top...

Beaux Reves...

Sweet Dreams, indeed!
