Midnight Owl Dresser

Martha Leone

Midnight Owl Dresser1 at MarthaLeoneDesign This Bassett dresser was so plain and that's why I liked it.

Concept I didn't have enough owl drawer pulls. That problem created an opportunity. As I studied the owl paper, I noticed that the owl eyes were different from owl to owl. It seemed as though I could do that with the knobs as long as the knobs mimicked the owls' eye shapes... concentric circles.

Process When painting a piece that will not be distressed, here's what I do: • sand it to rough up the finish • Primed • Painted three coats latex paint in a satin finish on the top and two on every other surface • Sealed it with Varathane Satin Poly Midnight Owl Dresser6 at MarthaLeoneDesign  Midnight Owl Dresser9 at MarthaLeoneDesign
