This is the original dresser I went to pick up where I also found this one and this one. I have a hard time passing up an empire!
I already had a vision of what I wanted when I picked it up. Almost as soon as I got it home I prepped it (sanded it all down and stained the top dark) and had it sitting on my driveway. I had a client (can I just say I love meeting new people! She is awesome and I probably never would have met her had it not been for furniture!) stop by to drop off (or pick up, can't remember now!) a few other pieces and she saw this one sitting there. She asked if she could have it, and I said "Sure!" But, then had to ask the inevitable question-"What do you want done with it?" The whole while dreading in my heart because I knew I wouldn't be able to do what I wanted. :( She said, "Black." Double :( :(.
I'm so happy with the way it turned out! It's such a stately piece and perfect for the TV stand she's going to use it as. It fits so well in her home! Hubby said it looks better black anyway. lol
And, happy ending because I found another dresser almost immediately that I'm going to do what I had intended for this one. :)
Oh yeah! It's a beaut!!
Such a great top and it looks great with her dark floors.
These cruddy pics don't do it justice either! Wonder if that's a finger print, a rain drop, or spit on the lens?? ;)
So, so happy it's got a new home already!!
