I was pleased to find a stack of house numbers at a local thrift store and set about to put them to work!
This tired little dresser's last home resided in a barn. I could see she had great potential. Look at those lovely lines along the bottom! And grooved detail along the sides.
First came the white base coat. This improved things immensly!
The edges were slightly distressed by sanding, exposing the wood for what was to finally come.
A light coloured glaze was chosen to maintain the white patina. It was the perfect choice to slightly tone down the bright white and add abit of aging and character. The numbers were screwed on in random form for a touch of whimsey!
A few favorite rustic yet useful trinkets were added to the top for interest. Being a rustic piece, the elements on top marry the theme. A barnwood mirror and old barn window add interest. The platters are very useful for a key / loose change catch.
A dresser is a wonderful addition to any front entry area. The drawers offer amazing storage for gloves, hats, etc.
And the dresser was fine just white. However, the small added touches flipped the dresser into a 'feature item' that will indeed turn heads!
