I'm still working on my son's room. The dresser was the next thing on my list that required updating. I wanted it to look more rustic. I sanded all the draws.........
and stained them with the apple cider vinegar and steel wool solution.
I primed and painted the drawer handles.
I used Rustoleum American Accents Metallic.
Before - painting the drawer handles.
The top and sides of the dresser are laminate. The next best thing to use
is gel stain. I applied two coats of the walnut gel stain.
I still need to sand the front of the dresser.
The wood drawers also got a quick wipe down in a few areas
with Minwax special walnut.
So far so good. I love how the different stains make the drawers look old and rustic. I'm use to only doing this with paint. It's good to know that stain also works well. I love being able to see the grain of the wood.
It rained really hard this morning and it looks like the sun is coming back out. I'm off to hand sand the front of the dresser. I will post the updated dresser this week.
Thanks for stopping by!
