My first awesome French Provincial dresser with all drawers,hardware and mirror saved from a flea market on the Mexico border.   
Photo: finished product

My first project..French Provincial dresser. Sanded all surfaces and then applied a light coat of white and distressed with Ralph Lauren tobacco glaze. Added a new backing due to some water damage. Painted the metal hardware in a oiled bronze.  Looking forward to my next adventure!
