zig zags: part 2

After I finished with this zig zaggy number:

I just kept on going...

I picked up this dresser at a thrift store:

Cute, but I knew I could make it cuter. Oh, and yes, I know we need new heat registers, it's on my list...

So here is my cuter version:

So here is what I did:
  • primed the whole piece with an oil-based primer and let it cure for days and days
  • used a few coats of pure white
  • used charcoal paint to create the pattern
  • distressed the piece like crazy
  • sealed the whole thing with varathane
  • added anthro owl knobs
If you like this piece, and you are local, then boy are you in luck. It's available at my booth (202) at the Old Strathcona Antique Mall.

I'm pretty sure there will be more zig zags in my future. But that's all for now folks. Hope you've had a wonderful week!
