We have been so anxious to reveal The Yorkshire. She’s been done for over a week now. The delay is due to Mother Nature finally sending snow our way in Denver. We received close to 12 inches over the past week and, while snow melts quickly around here, the ground has been soaked and muddy. No more! The sun was out today and the temperature hit close to 60! So, this afternoon, we moved The Yorkshire into the staging area and waited for the sun to drop just enough to give us the perfect light that we love to photograph our work in.
The Yorkshire came to us in pretty rough shape. Her previous owner must have never waxed or polished her original wood finish because the old varnish was flaking off like Goldmember’s skin. No, we did not eat it. Eww. We did sand it, though. Oh did we sand it. While sanding her, she started to speak to us and we started to envision her final look. The top was just begging for a rich, dark stain and we knew this custom blend, aqua green we made for a smaller project a while back would be perfect for the ridges and detailing on The Yorkshire.
Once we painted, distressed, glazed, and waxed her, it was time to put the hardware back on. With all the original hardware painted white and distressed, to go along with the distressed edges on the dresser, we felt like she was lacking something. We found these wonderful pink glass knobs in our knobbery collection and as soon as we saw them on her, we fell in love. Shabby and glam. Bam!
The Yorkshire is a classic 9 drawer dresser. She measures just under 6 feet long, about 2 and a half feet tall, and 20″ deep.
