Brooks Bros. - Buttoned and Blue
I have no clue why I thought of Brooks Bros. when I finished this three drawer dresser.
He seemed so blue and buttoned up.
Started as a knotty pine boy with rust around his handles.
Washed and handles removed.
Already sturdy so no major repairs needed.
I have used this blue on several pieces and love it.
Called Rain Storm.
The handles were quite rusty and I was prepared to replace them.
However I always sand a little to see if handles are worth saving.
They were worth saving!
He sat patiently in the front yard waiting for me to finish sanding the handles.
I almost changed my mind and added knobs.
But, no, I liked the original handles better.
A Brooks Bros. boy - all blue and buttoned up.
Already available in Booth W-10, Riverfront Antique Mall.
We have Kitchen Demo Day scheduled for May 1!
Progress pics next week.
I promise we are working hard.
