Antique Dresser Update And A Feature!

First off, I want to thank Katie over at Creatively Living for featuring my old spindle dresser on her blog!  


This is a great little antique dresser and mirror set purchased off Craigslist.  I sanded the entire piece down and then used vaseline on the areas I didn't want the paint to stick to.  Then I painted the dresser ASCP's Duck Egg, and I stained the top of the dresser and the 3 drawers with Minwax Jacobean.  I waxed the dresser with AS clear wax after I distressed it, and used a clear poly on the top of the dresser and the three drawers.
