Vintage Dresser

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!). 


 Before

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!


After

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!!
