Petite Chest of Drawers

I recently painted this dresser for a friend. She got the dresser and a matching vanity FREE from another friend (lucky!).

My friend also dabbles in furniture refinishing, but she's also a yoga instructor, mom of 2 and is starting her own business...so time for painting is limited.

She brought me this beauty with the top already sanded down!



The hardware is to die for antique...so that stayed. Here is the dresser today!











I can't wait to see the vanity she's bringing when she picks this up later in the week!

Hi,
Beautiful piece of furniture and can't wait to see the vanity! It's hard to believe the Before and After are the same dresser. The colour is fantastic. What is its information? (company, type, sheen?) Also, what did use use as a wash?
Thanks for your help,
Cathy
