Empire Dresser Makeover
Mr. OMT has been working on this Empire Dresser for a while now. We were lucky enough to be given this beautiful piece from a friend of ours. It had a lot of damage to it and was very chippy. The veneer was peeling off and had some water damage. Instead of painting it or removing the veneer, Mr. OMT decided to keep as much of it’s original state as much as possible leaving it with a chippy look. Which I think gives it a lot of character.
After blending the veneer into the wood beneath and then once it was smooth he then went over it again with a 120 grit sand paper making it even smoother, so much that you would never know the drawers were even covered in veneer in the first place.
He then applied a coat of polyurethane, after it was dry he lightly sanded it and applied another coat of Polyurethane (this step were done 3 times.)
