An Antique Serpentine Front Dresser in White
This was a custom project for a new client that I happened to meet while picking up another piece of furniture. This gorgeous antique mahogany serpentine front dresser was ready for a new look so we decided to go with antique white and a deep rich finish on the top. I achieved the antiqued paint surface by layering bright white, then a cream wash, then liberal amounts of sanding with 220 grit to let the white pop through, then hitting it with a bit of 80 grit for distressing, and then a dark wax.
