Brooks Bros. - Buttoned and Blue

painted dresser, furniture makeover
I have no clue why I thought of Brooks Bros. when I finished this three drawer dresser. 

He seemed so blue and buttoned up.

Started as a knotty pine boy with rust around his handles.

Washed and handles removed.

Already sturdy so no major repairs needed.

I have used this blue on several pieces and love it.

Called Rain Storm.

The handles were quite rusty and I was prepared to replace them.

However I always sand a little to see if handles are worth saving. 

Guess what?

They were worth saving!

He sat patiently in the front yard waiting for me to finish sanding the handles.

I almost changed my mind and added knobs.

But, no, I liked the original handles better.

A Brooks Bros. boy - all blue and buttoned up.

Already available in Booth W-10, Riverfront Antique Mall.

We have Kitchen Demo Day scheduled for May 1!

Progress pics next week.

I promise we are working hard.

See y'all!
