Finally The Welsh Dresser is Complete!

Well my hubby has been away from home for almost a week on a business trip and I had some major difficulties getting these pictures added on here. So today he fixed my silly problem and tada here they finally are.


First I wanted to again thank a very special couple, Andy and Marilyn for this lovely treasure. I just love it and wanted you both to know how grateful I am that you gave this to me. It is finally up for your viewing and I hope I made you happy with the end results. It now stands beautifully in my dining room.


The Welsh dresser is pretty much complete. As you can see by the photos, the bottom of the dresser is only partially done. I have reglued and renailed the shelf as well as painted and waxed it. I reused all the original hardware and had to take the backing off and left it open in the back. I will eventually add antique wall paper to the bottom shelf in the dresser. The knobs are all cleaned up and shine lovely. I sanded the cabinets but left some of the knicks and painted it with the lighter colour first and then added the dark paint after. It was then lightly sanded to highlight the imperfections and to show the lightest paint underneath. It was then sealed with wax.


Here are the after pictures of the welsh dresser. Hope you enjoyed the transformation.

    Wow, Christina you have done yourself proud.
    We got home last night from our trip south so were able to
    view the pictures this morning. Once again the Welsh Dresser
    has regained its beauty. We really like what you have done with it.
    Nice to know that it has a second life.
