Project: Lacquered Dresser Experiment

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was good – more working on the house. I was pumped because I scored the below dresser at a local consignment shop. I was scouting out for a new dresser because the one we used in our condo in our master bedroom was just a little too small (it was actually a buffet my grandmother refinished). So Friday night I was searing craigslist and my husband actually found a different dresser, and upon scouting it out I found a whole new consignment shop I hadn’t been to – it was awesome! Lots of goodies, but this one came home with me!!!

So my mission on this project is to try and lacquer it. For those of you following my ORC, you will know that we are re-doing the master bathroom and I am having a custom vanity made lacquered in an orangery/cherry red color. So I decided to try and make them match. I have re-finished many a peice of furniture before, however whenever I try to do something in the high gloss it is never that lacquered look that I really want. So I am goign to give it a whirl – any words of wisdom or encouragement is much appreciated!
