Faux Burl Chest
July 4th, 2009

Meranda Snyder PaintedfurnitureonlineMeranda Snyder Paintedfurnitureonline9I bought a French provincial Dixie 50's bedroom set a couple months ago which came with three pieces, - A french provincial 3 drawer hutch, a 6 drawer dresser and a mini dresser end table. I kept the 3 drawer hutch and sold the other two pieces. I ditched the top bookshelves and kept the bottom dresser as I really loved the idea of it being a bed side end table. I kept my eyes open for another identical dixie hutch, which I found a couple months later. I really wanted to give them a french makeover, which I had envisioned some type of spectacular stenciled finish, but I ended up deciding on a fake-faux burl finish. The dresser originally came with a center hardware pull, so I filled in the holes with a wood filler, and sanded the front drawers until they were completely even. You can see my other posts for the paint finish technique. I found another set of hardware that I put aside for a special piece, but I was missing three pulls to finish off the 2 dressers. Interesting enough, I ran into the exact identical pulls- AND in the amount I needed (A GOD blessing!) in a hardware store in DC.  I found the keyholes online on EBAY....  All in all, they will be treasured for years! Check out my pictures......

Blessings! Meranda
