Little Red Vintage Dresser

Sharing a quick blog post on a little red dresser that I started almost a year ago.  I finally pulled it off the back burner to finish it.  I chose American Paint Company’s Firework’s Red for this antique piece using random brush strokes to build texture.

Yes, I literally finished this one in the office.

I mixed up a custom glaze using brown and black to accentuate the texture and deepen the color.

I love the color of the glass drawer pulls.  I’ve always love this color gemstone too.

I rolled her on off to our Not So Shabby location in Holland, Michigan where she’s looking for a new owner.

  1. Shelly —

    Beautiful work, as always! Question: did the glaze mixture serve as your only topcoat, or did you top it with something else?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Monica, I applied a clear coat of Top Coat first, then I did a wipe on / wipe off glaze. The glaze in and of itself wouldn’t be a sufficient finish to leave on a piece of furniture so I need to seal it. I could have sealed it with Top Coat, Hard Coat or Wax but I opted for the wax.
