Before the Paint

This antique Eastlake dresser set is one of the oldest pieces I have worked on to date. Being over 100 years old it is handmade with amazing spoon carved details.  The drawers feature Knapp joints which seem to be rare to come across these days. All in all, it’s old and amazing!

In its original condition the dresser is without a doubt, gorgeous but it is still in need of a makeover.

Preparing for Paint

This set was thoroughly sanded and cleaned to get it ready for paint. The headboard had a few crevices where dust bunnies were hiding. An old toothbrush was the perfect tool to reach and remove them (I swear it’s not my husbands).

There was a small split in the upper corner that required a bit of patchwork.  The wood glue syringes always work wonders for situations like these.  You can get these handy syringes here.

While I was busy prepping this set for its new look, my customer was busy choosing her colors from this sample palette of gorgeous colors! Paint samples, chalk paint, pure home paint, kristi kuehl

She decided on a gorgeous cottage blue with a creamy vanilla top and I have to admit that they go together beautifully.  They are such wonderful match for a cottage style set.

The top was hand painted bisque while the rest was finished in memphis blue. With a little sandpaper, the entire set was distressed to accentuate the spoon carved details, embracing the amazing antique characteristics. Before being sealed for protection, the amazing hardware was painted in bisque to match the dresser top. Painted Eastlake dresser, eastlake, painted dresser, vintage dresser, chabby chic
