I picked this highboy up from a woman who told me she might have a little dresser fetish. I just smiled and said, "Me too." :) :)
It was in great condition but just a little ho-hum. I like the simplicity of it and wanted to keep that feel. This isn't a true before as I got carried away and forgot to take it before I started working on it (yes, I still do that!).
It's been said a thousand times, but here it is one more: There is such power in a coat of paint and new hardware! <3!
It's a lovely, soft blue/green/gray. I actually think this color works as a neutral because it can be paired with so many other colors.
You've probably noticed I love to mix hardware, but I love the look of all these awesome knobs in a line down the front of this piece. Simple yet eye catching.
Cute little legs. :)
I did no prep work on the body of this piece--no sanding. So, when I went to distress the paint had a natural chippy look even though it's latex. It's what I was hoping for and I'm glad she delivered! :)
It had a beautiful mahogany top so I sanded it down, gave it two coats of Espresso stain, and 3 coats of poly.
Yep, love me a cute little dresser!!
