Union Jack Dresser

There are sooo many blogs I read and follow that have given me the inspiration to do what I do.  I haven't been doing it for very long but I L.O.V.E. it! There is such a sense of fulfillment when I buy an old, outdated piece of furniture and transform it into something that I can't stop looking at.  One of the blogs that I can't get enough of is Miss Mustard Seed.  If you haven't checked out her blog you've been living in a cave, you really need too.  It's a must see blog for furniture junkies like myself.  She did an amazing job with a dresser where she painted the Union Jack on it.....I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.  I've also seen the Union Jack all. over. the. place.  It was the perfect inspiration for this dresser that has been taking up space in my junk craft room.  (It's a AWESOME dresser with dovetail drawers and all wood.  It was a beast to move cause it's so heavy.) Thank you Miss Mustard Seed for all the inspiration you've given so many of us!


This is the BEFORE:
 I had to use a lot of wood filler. It had some pretty deep scratches and was missing some edges. 
 The AFTER:

~Hope You Like It!~
This will be going in my shop and will also be at the Vintage Market in Scottsdale AZ on September 17th.

I just stopped by from miss mustard seed! We are redoing my son's room and the inspiration is the Union Jack so this dresser caught my eye! Great job, it looks fantastic!

Inspired by you said...

Wonderful job!! I, too, was inspired by MSS to do a union jack dresser. It is a great feeling to see how you can transform something into a show stopper! Enjoy your new dresser!
