Marble Top Dresser
We have pretty much emptied out my Father-in-law’s condo and are ready for the ending next week. My husband and his siblings have management to find homes for just about everything. Walking through the now-empty condo is a bit unsettling. All his worldly possessions, and also those of his two wives, are now gone. Gone to lineage or friends, but still gone. One of the pieces we inherited is this antique marble top dresser. I don’t have much around it. In their big house that we sold several years ago, it sat in an upstairs hallway and held linens. In the condominium it resided in a guest room. Just when I thought I had my living room situated, this dresser was delivered and everything was moved around. The sofa went back on the window wall to make room for the dresser. The ironmongery is intriguing. Each drawer has a lock with the key still inserted. All four commencement keys are there…and all the locks work. It is need of some tender adoring care. Some of the tack are missing from the handles. It’s a bit scratched up and some pieces of the molding have arrive off. I have them though, so all I need to do is glue them back on. I amass up some small pitchers and a tray for on top of the marble. I didn’t realize until I had them all together that there were this many. I have to admit that just looking at it makes me happy. I ordered some Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint from Robyn Story Designs. My friend (and I sponsor her blog) Kim, at Savvy Southern Style just posted about the milk paint today. Robyn Story is her stockist. I, of course, ordered Mustard Seed Yellow. Honestly, I am scared to death to tackle this project. Shaking in my boots as a matter of fact! The paint will ship by the end of the moon so when I’ve attempted this transformation I’ll be back to tell you all about it. That is if I’m still reputation. We also got this little round table. I ponder it’s adorable. What do you think…should I paint this too?

But when my data processor mouse lingered over to the “Brooklyn” link on Craigslist, a world open, one replete with all the charm — or potential charm — a boy could ask for. Here was a land of build, chunky moldings, beautiful parquet floors and tin can ceilings. There were brownstones and limestones and rowhouses, warehouses and lofts, and the grass outside in the blurred realtor pictures literally seemed greener. Still clearly novel to New York, some of my demur about Brooklyn (Will my commute be fearful? Will anyone ever come visit? Will I meet in without impressive facial eyelash?) still lingered, but Craigslist gave me a certain knickknack of what a Brooklyn apartment looked like that I found totally irresistible. But there was one thing about these apartments in particular that thrust somewhere in my will. Marble. I had seen a few listings for apartments with beautiful, fancy Victorian frieze fireplace encompass and mantels, and some part of my brain generalized the feature to all Brooklyn apartments. It was a granted. Brooklyn equaled marble, and I dearth in on that.
For all the charms of my building, defense is not one of them. Almost all 20 apartments in the construction have the same marble groundsel, and almost all 20 of them look horrendous. This goes nicely with the 80 marble treads on the stairs up to our apartment that are similarly discolored and under-appreciated. But since the marble threshold at my front door sits right in the transition between my apartment and the public hall, I’ll admit that I always kind of ignored its existence. It’s not really in my unit, so what does it matter? I’d be cleaning my entryway and maybe I’d stop, wipe down the side inside my door, sob, and move on with my life, or possibly I’d just leave it alone altogether. Not my problem, I’d say to myself.
For such a far used and omnipresent normal stone, marble is annoyingly temperamental. It’s a very open, relatively mild stone, which means not only can it scratch and damage easily, but it also tends to absorb stains from all kinds of sources: oxidise, oil, food, fungi, wax and more. Marble can even get watermarks. In vague, for regular marble maintenance, you want to be as low-tech as possible — a soft sponge or cloth and warm weaken, perhaps with a bit of kind knockout soap if you must. Acidic cleaners (like citrus-based cleansers or vinegar), very basic products (like bleach) or abrasives should be avoided, as they can etch, indent, and damage the gem.
Things were looking really good after the wet sanding, but there was still some buff-ish discoloration on a few ability of the marble — deep, set-in paint — that I wondered if I could improve. To remove stains, I needed a poultice, which is essentially a firmness that can fit on the marble’s surface and reabsorb the stain. Most color or hardware stores have whiting (calcium carbonate) or other cataplasm powders specifically for lifting stains off marble and other porous stones, but I wanted to try making my own.
