Handsome Empire Dresser in Artissimo

Artissimo Empire 1 - EC

Oh my goodness. When I saw this dresser posted on Craigslist, I fell in love quickly! Such a stately and handsome dresser and the mirror was spectacular. I made an offer a bit lower than the asking price and sent it of hoping for the best. I always stay within my specified furniture budget when shopping for pieces and I rarely allow myself to go above and beyond so often that means I make … [Read more...]

I didn't mind driving 45 minutes one way for this lovely depression-era beauty. My pleasure. The picture was a little unclear so I wasn't sure quite what I was getting. I was more than pleasantly surprised. I loved her tiered look, her turned legs and all her pretty carved details. Oh my. Isn't she a doll? She came with an amazing mirror too ... I couldn't wait to get her painted up! She … [Read more...]

This dresser caught my eye when I spotted her. She beckoned me from across the room. This girl has PRESENCE. My apologies for the lack of a before picture...I think I was pretty excited to get started and just jumped right in! Her mirror was just a frame as the mirror had been broken in the past. The frame was gorgeous though. I wasn't certain if I wanted to incur the cost of having a new … [Read more...]

 I apologize for the poor picture, but sadly it s the best one that I have. This dresser was so pretty from the start - a furniture connection of mine was selling it and immediately it caught my eye. I loved the legs, the three large drawers and the gorgeous mirror. I envisioned her in a light blue...I chose to paint her in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Provence - it is the perfect shade of soft … [Read more...]

A friend messaged me about this antique dresser - she asked if I would possibly be interested in purchasing it from her as she simply had no time for another project right now. I scheduled a time to stop out to see it to be certain it would be an appropriate project for a makeover. I knew from the second I laid eyes on her, she would be awesome with a makeover! I also decided the second I saw … [Read more...]

I was also inspired by this piece from the talented Miss Mustard Seed. Her Mora … [Read more...]
