The one drawer had a broken off edge that needed to be repaired. I used Bondo, again the tutorial has loads of photos and details of how I got it repaired.
Now to paint this beauty. I chose Fusion Milk Paint in the color London Fog. Above right is the first coat going on. Don’t be alarmed milk paint has an ugly stage 😉

All pieces were painted 3 coats of this warm white color allowing each coat to dry before adding another. There is a big change already.
Once distressed the milk paint was sealed using clear Fusion Furniture Wax then dark waxed with ageing Fusion Furniture Wax.
I ordered new hardware from D lawless Hardware. I wanted the solid brass shininess toned down and to look aged so a quick spray with Rustoleum oil rubbed bronze spray paint wiped back with a green scrub pad worked perfectly.
I LOVE this piece, even with all the work it took it was all worth it.
