I so love working on antiques.
I have been looking for a piece so that I could use the most amazing
color of milk paint! It's actually the most gorgeous shade of turquoise that
I have seen and it comes from the Real Milk Paint Co. More on the color later!
The pics really don't do it justice. I used it on an earlier dresser I did here.
Anyway. I digress. So I spotted this piece on CL listed as a dresser.
It's actually a little buffet. They were asking way too much for it because half of it was
in pieces! The owner said the drawer fell down the stairs.
uh, yeah. This is my humpty-dumpty piece. Read on!
Quite the mess, eh??! The right door was snapped off at the piece that attaches to the hinge.
Luckily the owner had all the pieces and I was able to sand, glue and clamp. You cant even tell
it was ever broken. Thankyouverymuch.
The pic below is the middle drawer. All ten pieces of it. Yikes!
And here is Humpty all back together!
The mirror was in pretty poor shape. I used a stencil and some frosted glass spray to try and
camouflage the defects.
