A friend of mine asked me to refinish this piece for her. She has amazing decorating style and her home is a beautiful mix of new and old. She had this MCM chest of drawers and wanted to add some black and gold but leave some of the natural wood.

I removed the drawers and gave them and good cleaning and sanding. Then I gave them two coats of Liquorice – the perfect black! To give the drawers the same sheen as the natural wood, I gave them two coats of Clear Coat. Clear Coat is one of my favourite newer products from Country Chic! The application is smooth and easy, it dries nice and quick, and is easy to layer on for increased durability.

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
