Could be my best work yet!

I found this dresser on Craigslist it is solid hardwood early 1900's by Angelus Furniture Company. It is for a friend's little girl Bella. It has sat in my garage for a good month maybe 2 while we decided what exactly she wanted. Well yesterday we made decisions and moved forward. I wish I had before photos I am really bad about taking them, usually I just run out and get as much done as I can while Brody is napping. Just imagine it a Pecan stain. The top was really worn and in need of refinishing. We primered first with Kilz, then sprayed it with Krylon Satin Almond. I sanded the top and drawers weeks ago. Once all the painting was done and dried I stained the top with Minwax Special Walnut, I applied 3 coats of Special Walnut and let it dry overnight. This morning I applied the Ralph Lauren Faux Technique Glaze in Oxfordshire. I am absolutely thrilled with the results! I love the look the glaze gave the overall piece. I hope Ashley and Bella enjoy it as much as I do! ;) Thank you for letting me work on this piece for you...can't wait to see it in Bella's room!
