Wonderful Dresser

This week we had a beautiful piece to work on. It was in pretty good shape when we bought it for 75 dollars. It has carving on it which was all there. All the hardware was still on it, which is unusual and it was really pretty hardware always a plus.

Here is the before picture

Notice the nice rope around the bottom with fluting on each side and carving at the top and the bottom and of course the beautiful swag on the top drawer in the center.

Here is the After Picture

We painted the case of the piece a taupe color. The side panels and the drawers were painted a light tan. Then the details were distressed by hand with sand paper then everything was rubbed with Antique Pine Paste wax.

This is what it looked like after our very creative Decorator got her hands on it.
This is Thursday lets see how long it lasts on the floor. The end of the month is just a few days away I am sure the store would like for it to sell pronto!!

Update April 1st : SOLD for 450.00 in 4 days.
A great feeling that someone liked it as much as I did.
More detail pictures.
