Pin It
America, America, God shed his grace on thee...

How fun it was to work on a dresser for a wonderful lady named Willie.  Willie wanted a dresser done for her grandson who shares her love of Country.  She said "Americana" themed and turned me loose.  

In order to keep it more masculine I decided to use the same process as the Subway Art Dressers and substitute  patriotic words and graphics.  What do you think?  Did it work?
I used American Paint Company's 'Fireworks Red' over 'Born on the 4th of July'.  I used my Silhouette to create the stencils and lots of different fonts to add some interest.
The dresser was a fun one and came together quite nicely.  The top was sanded and re-stained, the knobs were cleaned up and polished with dark wax.  The body of the dresser was finished with clear wax and buffed to a nice sheen.  Love my buffing brush!!!
And Crown thy good with Brotherhood, from sea to shining sea.

Have a great week!
