Have you ever chanced upon a lavender gray when sanding a piece of furniture?
Remember the Out, Out dresser I hauled home? (Read here)
This is how she looked - white with green and gray peeking through the peeling paint.
Because the paint was peeling, I had to sand before painting.
But when I saw the patina, I stopped.
I never found the delicious green except in tiny spots - evidently this piece had been stripped in the past.
There was a cream, a brown and a lavender gray.
She is one sturdy piece - most likely 1920's.
Sanded her smooth.
The few handles were too bad to use.
They were not original.
She once had knobs, not pulls.
Remember I am not buying anything so I used these pulls from Horror Monster, my beloved stash.
Painted them Heirloom White.
The holes were way too big for the screws.
Trick: Cover the holes inside with painter's tape. Break up some skewers. Fill holes with wood glue and skewer pieces. Wait until it dries. Take a blade and cut off even.
New screws fit now.
The top drawer had dividers.
Miss Out, Out turned out so pretty, she sold about three hours after being hauled over to the antique mall.
But, wait a minute, where is this booth so clean and uncluttered?
This cannot be Distressed Donna's Booth W-10!
I'll let you in on the secret soon!
