I know, I know. I haven’t written a post in a while and I sincerely apologize. I took a fantastic break in Wisconsin with my family and came home to a crazy schedule!!! I finished and delivered 2 dressers and have been reupholstering up a storm!

You have all seen Claudia’s dresser and it looks beautiful in her room. The other dresser was a custom piece. She had asked for a dresser with at least 6 drawers and for that antique-rustic-worn in look. I finally found the perfect dresser! not only did it have 6 drawers but it also had an additional 3 half drawers. Time to strip it! It had over 3 coats of paint! Woof. We used stripper, we used sand paper, we even used a heat gun! Finally we got it to the point where we could start painting. A nice antique white to go with the theme of antique-rustic-worn. After it was all painted, I went around and distressed the heck out of that dresser! it got to the point where it was enough and I was really started to like the look of the dresser (also hoping the future owner would enjoy it too). Last but not least I got some antique bronze pulls that, I personally think, added the final and perfect touch!

Stripping with the heat gun

And then with some stripper…


Finally painted!!!



In that last picture you can see Garett working on an old piano. We will be repurposing that…more details to come.

Final piece!!!
