Vintage Dresser in Peacock Plume

I picked this cutie up from a garage sell yesterday.  I loved the shape of it and the fact that it was so petite!  It's just plain cute and that's why I like it. ;)

I will tell you right now, it may look like tiger oak (which is just quarter sawn oak, btw), but it is not tiger oak.  It has a fake finish on it to make it look like tiger oak and it was hideous to behold.  I mean N.O.T.  G.O.O.D.  Even hubby said, "What is that on there?"  So, I had no issue with covering that baby with paint! 



The color is Peacock Plume from SW.  It's a beautiful medium blue green (although you can't see much of the green it it from these pics, that always makes me sad).

This was a pretty straight forward redo.  No primer or sealer, 2 coats of paint, and wax. 

 She's got these adorable side panels. 

 A beautiful wood top,

 pretty new knobs, 

and, a cute flower detail on the mirror. 


And, I love it.
