Striped Beach Dresser

Thinking about the beach and my someday beach house on this finally feeling like winter day in Jersey. Which brings me to the CL dresser I just finished. Which I froze my butt off taking outside pics of just for you and my Etsy shop too :)

Notice all the mismatched hardware which I'll save for another day.
I sanded down the top getting it ready for some new stain and taped off to do some striping.
I added some new starfish pulls that I found at a local building center. They were originally silver so I sprayed them dark walnut to match the new dark walnut stained top. I glazed w/ a mix of 1 part gray paint and 3 parts glaze to tone it down. Who wants a dresser that looks like a bright ugly striped shirt? Don't like my man in one and don't  like a dresser wearing one either.



Just another one for that someday beach house.

Lovely! I saw your dresser first from Miss Mustardseed's blog, but I just saw one on One King's Lane exactly like this (different hardware). Beautiful.
