I really should have known better. Leaving a pile of hardware out on the desk was just a bad idea. It was only a matter of time before a set of curious little hands picked up a bob and carried it off, somewhere, anywhere in this house (or yard). :}So now I have this.
The good news is I'm almost finished with this dresser: Consider this a preview. To complete this project I still need to find a matte wax (anyone have a source other than Annie Sloan?), repair the runners for these cockamamie drawers, and line the drawers with some pretty paper from flax -my go to source for paper in the city.
Quick pic of how the black looks against the blue walls in the sewing room -also a work in progress. I'll give a rundown on the paint, etc as soon as I find that pull and finish this thing up.
