I'm happy to report that I'm finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel and have made great progress. Been refinishing an antique dresser for a customer. I'll give you a sneak peak of where I am.
Honestly, this was a little scary since the ends are veneer and I knew sanding wasn't going to be an option. After 3 cans of miracle liquid, Formby's Furniture Refinisher, those scratches faded into a distant memory.
Voila! I'm in love with Mr. Formby. He's da' man!
A little crumb snatcher has etched their initial on one of the drawers. Yikes!
Sorry, kid. Mr. Formby out smarted you! Ha!
She's all stripped and has a fresh coat of Mahogany stain. All that's left to do is apply the rub on poly top coat. When I get her all put back together, I'll let you feast your eyes on all of her beauty.
Then there's these girls that I referred to as the "Double Yucks". You might remember that I was having quite a time trying to strip the 5 million layers of top coat off of them.
This picture is bringing back some ugly memories! There may have been some unpleasant
FINALLY, they have been transformed. Black paint with a chocolate glaze and a polycryllic top coat. I'm planning to make upholstered seats for them but I think that will wait a little while. We really need a break from each other!
Sweet and oh so much better! (Sarah, if you're out there, I need some photography lessons ASAP! Help!)
Can't wait to finish up the dresser because I've got some other projects that I'm itching to get started on!!! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
