4. More pics

  5. Finished dresser 2.  Dark French grey with antique brass and mother-of-pearl knobs.  The cream paint has been left underneath the grey if distressing is desired and the drawers are painted an off-white shade.  Love it.  Will be hard to sell this piece but it will soon be on etsy and/or craigslist.  Sigh. 

  6. I love how dresser 2 (aka grey dresser) turned out.  A few coats of wax, G and I decided, would be the way to go for a more matte look.  (Unlike the poly finish we put on dresser 1/blue dresser.)  Once I get it settled into its room, I’ll get some pics.  I don’t know if I can part with it.  Until then, here’s a glimpse from our poorly lit garage-a shot that makes it look slightly purple instead of grey (still). 

  7. Dresser 1 with one coat of paint.  More of our tool and limited space in the garage.  Greg made his toolbox in college out of leftover wood (notice the worm wood…we think it’s neat).
