Primer Red Dresser

I love this little dresser.
It was in great shape when we found it.
Here is what it looked like in original form.

The client who reserved this piece requested it be painted in Annie Sloan's Primer Red. Great color choice! After distressing, I followed up with some dark wax to make it look a bit more aged.
The wood top was in great shape - so we decided to leave it unpainted.  I sanded it down and gave it
a fresh coat of stain and then sealed it with clear wax.

Such a great barn red color. Love the results!
