My friend stopped by the shop recently with this beautiful dresser in the back of her car and asked if I wanted to buy it. It is so nice when people bring furniture to me and especially when it is a fine piece like this one! I love the fancy scrolling details and the turned legs on petite caster wheels.
The front looked like it was missing something on the raised center, so I added some wooden appliques that I acquired a while ago from a yard sale.
This dresser is really wide and has a divided drawer at the top, so it could also be used as a buffet or sideboard.
I painted two base coats with French Linen Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Then I dry brushed Old White over all the details.
I love the way the French Linen looks with the whitewash over it. I also whitewashed the lovely hardware on this dresser.
I finished the dresser by lightly distressing here and there.
