You may remember this dresser from a previous post (here). It's the first piece I've done using my new spray gun! I really love how the gun makes quick work of painting and dry time!
The prep work was basically the same. I sanded and cleaned, re-glued and clamped a couple of the drawers and corrected a few flaws with wood filler.
Then I gave it 3 light-to-medium coats of paint (light coats are better, but sometimes I can't help myself!)
Then I distressed lightly and waxed using clear wax first and then a mixture of dark and clear. I buffed the wax and put back the "original" hardware, which I love and is stamped with "1960". (I'm not sure if the hardware is original to the piece, but it was on it when I bought it!)
Not bad for a first go at it (if I may say so myself!)
