If you’ve been around this blog for awhile, then you’re fully aware of my fear of knotty wood. It’s been documented a time or two or ten. I wouldn’t say it’s a full-blown phobia, but it’s definitely teetering on the brink. Which is a shame, because this little dresser is such a cutie. Nice carved details, keyholes, and an adorable scalloped edge along the bottom. Too bad its covered in all those knotty eyeholes of evil.
But don’t fear! (I’m mostly talking to myself. You are probably pretty normal, and not getting the cold sweats looking at this dresser). Better After reader Rayana hid the horrors with a simple white-washing treatment. Ugh, I’m such a fan. I love white-washing. It’s got that weathered look going on without being overly distressed to the point of cheesiness. Versatile, is what I’m saying, you dig?
