There were several places along the edges of the drawers where the veneer was chipped. I filled them with wood filler, painted the drawers and distressed them. As I sanded the paint off the edges of the drawers, the wood filler began to show through. It's a much lighter a color than the wood and I didn't like the way it detracted from the overall look.
It was an easy fix. Before I applied the finish coat, I grabbed some basic brown, acrylic paint and a cheapy paint brush.
I painted over the wood filler with a light coat of the brown paint and the wood filler disappeared.
You can see the before and after on the corner veneer chip below…
After applying the finish coat you'd never be able to tell how many places the wood filler should've shown through.
Photos of the finished product will be up next week!
