Harlequin Dresser/Sideboard

This is one of those projects that I had to adjust my initial plan for the piece. I was originally going to stain the top and drawer fronts.  But the wood just wasn't cooperating.  So then I thought I'd try leaving some wood with this harlequin design and staining the drawer edges.  Here's the result.......

Before I show a little more detail, here's the before photo.....

I think the "after" looks a little better, huh?  

Now I'll show you a few more pics with some of the details.  I tried a new technique with a silver glaze.  What do you think?  

And here she is, one more time.......

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Your comments are always welcome!

I looooove the way the dresser turned out. The harlequin pattern is beautiful. I have a very similar dresser and after seeing yours I'm wondering if I should repaint it. Thanks so much for the inspiration and for sharing at Show & Tell.
