Talk about a drool-worthy piece of furniture!
THIS surely is one of them!
At least, that is what we furniture restorers would think.
Yes, we are a little strange 😉
How could one not gawk a little at this beauty?
She is just a gorgeous old gal…and look at that fantastic mirror!
This dresser is a statement piece commanding your attention.
She looks strong and sophisticated.
I thought she would be best made over in a deep color in effort to embrace her presence.
I chose to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite which is a soft black…it almost appears as a deep charcoal I think.
What a fantastic color for such a special piece.
I distressed her to allow those beautiful wood tones to show through and then sealed her up in Annie Sloan’s Clear Wax.
I added some pretty gold knobs to add to her glitz.
She is so stunning now!
I just love her new look.
She seriously is the Greta Garbo of dressers…sophisticated, strong AND charming!
I hope I can find more beauties just like her in the future!!
