Chic Black Dresser

This piece I picked up while on a little road trip with my 6 years old while he was on summer break.
It was the middle of summer, and hot as all heck in Palm Desert 116 degrees to be exact...I was so afraid to turn on my ac in fear that I would blow up my truck...can you say miserable?! But needless to say he was a trooper,oh and the cutest part of this little story...he nicknamed us "Adventure Boy and Adventure Girl" Fun huh!

Here she is before...how blah huh?

So I gave her a little sanding, then just started painting, I used a black I had mixed at Home Depot in satin finish...

I used the original hardware...sprayed them black, then ORB, then misted them with a hammered brown color....they came out cool I think, this little technique (if you want to call it that) gave them a bit more depth...

Then I roughed her up a bit...I may even go heavier?

She just went up for sale on Craigslist....So If any of you all are in Sunny Southern California, and would like to give her a new home....check her out here :)

Off I go to work on the hutch I 0picked up a few weeks ago... I hope to have it done in a couple days...Wish me luck!

Places I'm Partying!
