Linen Love

I LOVE this tall dresser.  It was a Craigslist find and I went to look at it, decided it needed too much repair, didn't buy it, went home, had remorse, asked my hubs if he wanted a project, called the lady back, sent the hubs to pick it up the next day! Wipe forehead.

The Before:

All the hardware is OLD and it doesn't match and I love that.  Gives it so much character.  Makes me wonder what this beauty may have seen over the years. 

All the drawers are dovetailed, it's all wood and in great shape. (Now that the hubs fixed her up!)  Love the keyholes.  Love the casters. I love love love the curvy drawers. 

I'm super into curves right now. If it has a curve, it's coming home with me!

Painted in ASCP French Linen (love) and Old White.  Followed by some clear wax, a good distressin' and some dark wax.  The dark wax is to die for. If it wouldn't harm me I might just wax myself up for a good George Hamilton bronze.

I think that crooked pictures are going to be my trade mark. :/   I must be lopsided.
