The detailing on the corners is probably what appealed to me most...and the overall shape. It certainly was not the knobs.
A tiny bit of sanding on the edges and it was ready for primer.
My plan is to use this in the guest bedroom. I bought fabric about four years ago to use somewhere. It is still on the roll. I thought that by pulling the colors from the fabric I might be motivated to make a dust ruffle and pad for the window seat. I probably have enough for curtains as well. Sounds like a snowy day project to me.
I mixed a brownish green glaze and applied it to the details.
This was the beginning stages of adding the glaze. I ended up adding glaze to the entire piece.
As I mentioned the knobs didn't do much for me, at least on this piece. (please excuse the blurred shot)
As I was applying the paint it dawned on me that I had some knobs that might be perfect for this piece. I bought these years, and I mean many years, ago. I liked them but they just never seemed to work on anything. I had a pair of matching knobs and four with a slightly different pattern. I was thrilled that this might be my chance to use them. I put the matching pair on the top drawer.
The top two are original and the bottom two have been doused with a little of the glaze that I used on the entire piece. Not a huge difference. I just wanted to kick back that orange tint a bit.
Don't you agree they are perfect for this piece? Love it when something I have held onto for so long is just what I need.
