Eastlake Dresser Makeover

eastlake 1 - EC

There are so many different styles of furniture... I have my favorites. I seem to tend toward rustic looking or curvy pieces of furniture, but sometimes I am drawn to simple, clean lines on a piece. To see a very helpful blog post on furniture styles, check out THIS POST by Shades of Blue Interiors. Take this dresser for example... it is an Eastlake-style antique dresser. It is boxy, but does … [Read more...]

Sweet Green Cottage Dresser Makeover

 When I spotted this amazing dresser with mirror, I jumped on it quick! I knew she wouldn't last long. What a gorgeous beauty she was, too....with all that dark delicious wood and curves abound. I loved her! I had to sand down the top of the dresser a bit as there was some old paper stuck to it and I also had to fill and redrill holes in the top two drawers to add some new hardware. I do … [Read more...]

It was a hot mess. The wood was old and worn.  The hardware missing. It was pretty unsightly. I asked what you would do...save it or burn it. I got a ton of responses!  It was fun to read your … [Read more...]

Gorgeous Dresser in Trophy Milk Paint

When I first spotted this piece for sale on a Facebook sale site, I was smitten. How sweet is this antique dresser with that amazing mirror and great detail on the drawer fronts? Sigh. I needed to make this sweet girl over. The hardware was all original, too. I was taken. I was fortunate enough to buy her...there is such competition for good pieces in my neck of the woods. It is like … [Read more...]
