This gorgeous Victorian style dresser was created by Cait from Little City Farmhouse with All-in-One Decor Paint in the color, Elegance!

This project went from a ‘I’ll quickly paint that’ to a time consuming labor of love!
Here is the before from the online listing photo:

At first glance, it looked alright, but the wood was gouged and chipped quite badly in a lot of placed. I filled with bondo, sanded, primed, and repeated until it was relatively smooth and even.  Because it’s an antique piece and I wanted the end result to look worn, I wasn’t particularly concerned about it being perfect.
Here is the durning:

There was a stage where I thought this piece was more work than it was worth – but I pushed through and gave it a few coats of Elegance.

Elegant indeed! You can see the paint is still drying in that photo, but the shape of the dresser was much more evident with some paint!
I decided to finish this piece off with a floral transfer and then Antiquing Wax to really give it some age and depth.

Despite all the prep work to get it to where it could be painted, it was definitely worth it! I love how it turned out!

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.
