Antique Upright Dresser

This dresser was a real mess when I found it, but I thought it had lots of potential.

I repaired and replaced the damaged parts, made some new shelves for the inside, primed it, painted, sanded, stained and sealed it all with poly. Some if the original hardware was missing so I updated it all with matching antique knobs.

She had potential alright!

White Kidney Desk

I picked up this little kidney shaped dressing table/desk a few weeks ago. It was really solid, but just needed some refinishing. I painted it pure white, sanded the edges a bit for a light distressing and finished it with a clear wax. I left the knobs unfinished for a little contrast.

Buttercup Dresser

I started this project weeks ago but ran into some issues getting the new hardware so this one sat in the garage for a lot longer then I had anticipated! Nonetheless, she is done now and cute as a button!

The mirror on this dresser was in terrible shape so with a lot of help from my husband (well let's be honest, he did it all)...he cut, cleaned and clear coated this really cool rusty metal screen and installed it into the frame. To balance the rusty metal screen I thought the glass knobs were a must have.

This sturdy dresser will be super cute in an entry with pictures displayed or an office message center or in a girls room to hang jewelry on.
