I was fortunate enough to buy this dresser along with the vanity I posted yesterday. You can imagine how giddy I was to bring them home.
When I listed the vanity yesterday I had a client say that she loved it and only wished it was a dresser. I said, "Oh? I happen to have the dresser, too!" She said she wanted it refinished the same as the vanity and I was very happy about that. They are truly stunning together.
The vanity is still available and if it doesn't sell by the end of the week I think I am going to keep it!
I just have to stop and stare. lol
I had to sand the top of this one down as there were deep scratches in it. Instead of staining it and sealing it with poly (my normal routine) I stained it and finished it with Minwax Antiquing Oil. I love the soft luster it gives. Poly has the tendency to look "cold" and oil brings out the warmth in the wood. I think it might be my new go-to.
The detail is so striking. I love this deep neutral behind all that creamy white.
There isn't any part of this dresser that isn't amazing.
The burled maple was lighter on this piece than it was on the vanity and I didn't like it with the white, so I sanded it down and then gave it two coats of Danish Oil in Dark Walnut.
I sanded the bejeebers out of the drawers so the finish is like silk.
