Refinished Antique Dresser!!!

Refinished Antique Dresser!!!

Oh, how I love this dresser!  Everything about her is so beautiful!  I think she may just deserve a name…SUGGESTIONS??
This was also a custom order for a customer, she really wanted the top stained!  I am so glad she did, it really helps accent the beauty of this dresser!
I didn’t get too creative with refinishing this dresser, as I didn’t want to take away from its natural beauty, more I wanted to bring it out.  I painted it with Benjamin Moore’s White Dove and then I slightly distressed it and added a watered down glaze to really get in all the cracks!  I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome!

We added the vintage glass knobs.  Glass is always the perfect solution when you really want the details to stand out instead of the hardware.  It added a subtle classiness without being overbearing.

I wish I had a spot for this dresser, if I did I might have just stolen it!

    I did one almost exactly like that! Had to keep it for my daughters big girl room.

    Beautiful dresser!! I would love to steal it!! If I had to pick a name I would name her Candace…sweet yet sophisticated.

    That is a lovely piece and a great makeover. Love the knobs too. Before my blogging and furniture painting days I actually gave a very similar dresser, on casters, to the thrift store. What was I thinking! I don't know why but Annabelle just popped into my head.
