LIttle Black Number

Little black number........

This was more than likely a child's dresser it is not a chest of drawers but not a 50 inch dresser either. It is the perfect size for the sq.foot challenged abode.

I learned a few lessons with this piece.  1.  I do not like working with paint outside.  2.  I do not like waxing outside.  and 3.  I will admit that Handy Hubby was right..clean out back craft room to paint large furniture in until the fall.
That being said....Rustoleum metallic in silver..ASCP in Graphite and AS dark wax are the materials used.

She is ready to go all decked out in her silver "earrings".  Painting the hardware silver gave it the right pop....
I Left the top natural..actually it is Formica and looked really good...

The mirror that came with it was also painted to match.
I think the child's dresser has grown up a bit.  Great for the Bedroom, or as a sideboard or in a bath...just the right size "Little Black Number"
You have a good one!  Sheryl


  1. Looks lovely in black! Thanks for sharing at Silver Pennies Sundays. x

  2. I have a small dresser similar to this that i was going to paint white but after seeing yours, I'm thinking of doing black. Yours is really beautiful!

    1. Thank you for stopping by...and good luck with your project!

  3. I love black furniture, you did a great job, and it was in good shape before the paint job!

    1. Thank you for stopping and plundering here today..The black number was a lot of fun and the black paint I think made it classy. You have a good day
