Little Dresser - Grain-Sacked!

painted furniture, Mod Podge, grain sack label, distressed dresser. makeover
Okay, okay, I keep referring to this dresser as having THREE drawers.

I finally noticed after reading comments and emails, there are FOUR drawers.

These dressers are great for beside the bed, by your sofa, blah, blah, blah - you've heard me extol the virtues of these cuties many times before.

Like the brown dresser yesterday, once I sanded it, I decided not to paint it.

Cute Samuel De Champlain grain sacks bags by Tina of What We Keep.

Even though all the back of the house furniture and household possessions are in the den and living room, I still found a space to Mod Podge. 

The old kitchen table.

A grain sack label.

Offset to allow for the handle.

Remember to get those lines straight.

Followed by two coats of satin craft varnish.

Hope to find yet another small dresser.

The top drawer has a neat organizer built in. 

It can be found at Riverfront Antique Mall in Booth W-10. 

It needs a home.

One last look at the label.

We are surviving the renovations - more posts coming this weekend.

See y'all!

Due to construction, I will be unable to set up at the annual Magnolia Ridge Antiques and Art Gathering. However, I will definitely be a shopper!  Hope to see you there.

  4. Cute look. I would never attempt it myself.

  5. Very cute! You'll sell that soon! No way that's going to languish.

  6. Donna, both dressers turned out adorable! I am sure they won't last long in your booth.

  7. What kind of paper do you use to print the graphics on when you use them for furniture?
