Little Pine Chest Update
After sanding, I applied 2 coats of shellac. I am finding it to be worth the extra effort with older pieces of unknown history, to prevent bleed through. White paint on the body of the dresser and a pretty mint green on the drawers, will help it to match a set of dressers in the room it will go in. I did some distressing and enhanced it with a little black paint because the wood is so light colored. The handles were spray painted black. It was poly-coated for protection. We decided that it also makes a cute bench and she had some fabric so I made a cushion and attached it with hook and loop. I just love how this turned out!
