Wrapping paper dresser

Yesterday I gave you this little sneak peak into what I was creating -

I found this wrapping paper at TJ Maxx a few months ago.

I instantly fell head over heals for it.  I originally thought about lining my vanity draws with it, but knew I loved it too much to hide it a draw.

I bought this cute little dresser at an auction oh about 2 months ago.

I wanted to do something fun with it & so my wheels turned and I got this beaut!

When I started the sanding process is when my mind was made up, I just knew I had to gift wrap the draws.  The dresser (you can see it in the original pictures) was a deep reddish color.  When I sanded it down it was a nice red wood.  I painted it saddle tan from Benjamin Moore, but of course a reddish tone was bleeding through.  I normally change out the handles, but I liked these with this look so stuck with them. 

I lightly sanded in a few spots, added a tad bit of ebony stain, wiped it down & then mixed dark brown & clear wax together and waxed it.  It pick up the exact colors I needed/wanted.  I am just still smitten with her :)  and I hope you love her too.

Happy Friday!  Here's to a wonderful weekend to all!
