Glamorous Hollywood Dresser Turned Shabby Chic

March 21, 2013

Custom furniture refinishing orders are great because people bring their beautiful antique finds to me and I never know what will walk through the door.  This was my first time refinishing a Hollywood type antique dresser and it was fun stuff.  Here she is before her glamorous makeover.  The outer finish was peeling and cracking.hollywood-dresser-beforeThe customers wanted something that looked similar to Eleanor, my workhorse desk so I painted her with CeCe Caldwell Simply White, heavily distressed her and applied clear wax.cece-caldwell-simply-white-hollywood-style-dresserI especially love the scrolls (you know I’m obsessed with scrolls)! cece-caldwell-simply-white-hollywood-closeup-furnitureComing up next is a matching California King size headboard!

My mother-in-law brought me these dilapidated waterfall pieces. I prefer some stained wood on a piece when possible so I sanded down the tops and the drawer faces with my orbital sander and stained them using our Cappucinno wood stain.
