About This Post
emme by design refinished this gorgeous dresser using General Finishes Nutmeg and Java Gel Stains! "Well, the snow days have finally given me time to complete the stunning solid vintage dresser that I shared recently. My furniture motto should probably be changed to, "Quality, not quantity" since I don't churn out multiple pieces every week. But when I DO have the time, well... This dresser was such a wonderful find. The previous owner used it in her son's bedroom, and it was well-loved. I sanded the top surface to remove some marker stains and some water stains, and then removed ions-old contact paper from the drawers. The top surface and 3 dove-tailed drawer fronts were stained with a gorgeous combination of Nutmeg and Java Gel Stain by General Finishes and were then sealed with a fabulous protective Hemp oil by Miss Mustard Seed, that really let the age of this piece truly shine through. The frame of the dresser was painted with a custom grey that I had on-hand, and was then sealed with my favorite Polyvine Ltd sealer."
