Classic Dresser Makeover

Remember this dresser that I shared a picture of earlier?
Well no, you probably don't because it looked more like this...  I shared this picture in this post. 


It is a very sturdy dresser, and thankfully, there was not much wrong with it.  The middle drawer was missing the stops, but that was about it!  I bought it a yard sale and the lady selling it said she had originally bought it with the intentions of painting it, but had never gotten around to it.

I refinished the top, since it was a little rough.  There were a couple of  gouges in it, that I couldn't quite get out, but I think they add to it's character.
Such pretty legs and detailing...
This is definitely one of those pieces that I wish I could keep.   Oh to have a place to put it!

  5. It looks great! I'm painting a similar piece of furniture - but the top was way too bad to stain. I like the two tone look! I'm a new follower!

  7. Love the stained top and all the detailing. Very pretty and I agree - the dings and gouges give it lots of character. Coming over from Crafty, Scrappy, Happy :)

  9. I actually have a dresser that is pretty much identical to this one and I've been tossing around the idea of redoing it for years now. I really like what you did with this! The white with the wood top, it looks really sharp.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. Nothing like a simple white dresser with a wooden top. It has that whimisical feel with just a touch of class. I don't think I'll ever tire of it. I would love for you to share your talents at my VIP party today. http://designergarden.blogspot.com/2011/09/vip-party-26.html
    Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
