French Gray 1930's Dresser

I bought this CL find when I found this and somehow squeezed them both in the back of my Honda Pilot. Love both these pieces!

It was in great shape. Felt a touch guilty painting it but obviously not guilty enough. Sanded it, gave it a wipe down with TSP, primed and painted it w/ the softest shade of gray oops paint and glazed it in black.The top I sanded back and stained in dark walnut.

I sprayed the amazing pulls gloss black and then dry brushed them w/ the gray paint.

The really nice thing about this piece is it's on casters. So much easier to pull outside for pics. I just bought those sliding disc thingies from HD. I was skeptical but they really do work.

Have a great week!
