Does Your Furniture Have A Story To Tell?
Handmade & To Die For
This poor sad dresser was on it’s way to the dump. When I say dump, I mean a giant facility where things go to die.
Follow this if you can: My husband’s nurse at his day job owns a transfer station (Meramec Valley Transfer Facility). Complicated. BUT- one of her missions is recycling and she pays someone to pull things out before they reach the dump that might be worth saving and every now and then we are lucky enough to get a call. We purchased this dresser from her and it was badly damaged but I was…
Gold Leafing Furniture
Mellow Yellow Dresser
A Glass of Champagne
I love Modern Masters paint. It is amazing. Jennifer from The Magic Brush has been teasing me with warm silver finishes.
I happened to have just the dresser that could use this treatment. This dresser had tons of metal accents. Each piece of furniture tells a story and this one is no different. It was custom built and then it seems to have been sent to Chesterfield, Mo back in the day where all these custom metal accents were fixed on. It has several metal decals even metal shoes! Every girl needs a great pair of shoes!
This is a Maaaaan’s Dresser
So…This baby is my husbands pride and joy and he says “This is a Maaaaan’s dresser.” After you finish rolling your eyes or giggling…take a look at the pictures. You will see he was right! It turned out beautiful. This would look great in several places in your home but it would be especially nice as a dresser for your man 🙂
Check out the before!
The top on this was completely destroyed. We recently started sharing a space with Reclaim Renew so my…
1800’s Oak Dresser Gets A 2013 Update
We got this dresser from a couple who got it from an antique shop, several decades ago, on the east coast. It’s in great shape. One of our only pieces that required no rebuilding…not even on a drawer! Seriously–if only you knew you would be much more excited with me!!
We got this guy down to its bones and wanted to keep some of the wood (I’ve decided she is a girl though…just for the record). She was just in too good of shape to completely paint but the color needed some help…
Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls
We have a couple of great waterfall pieces right now, one being a waterfall dresser. The other one is an end of a vanity or desk that my in-laws gave us. (awesome, right??) Because it was just the one piece we fixed it up and repaired everything we could on it. It had adorable hardware which we kept and painted and then went away on sanding and painting.
We did this piece to match a DOUBLE…
Drab Dresser From Turn Of the Century
This dresser was rescued about a month ago. It had mismatched handles was wobbly and needed love. A LOT OF LOVE. This dresser is from the turn of the century and needed to be completely dismantled. Literally, the top, sides, drawers, and everything was taken apart and given special attention.
Although this dresser came a long way. The hardware wasn’t salvageable for this piece, but we saved it all for future projects. The top barely made it through demolition and you can tell its old and wise, but it is still lovely. Like all 100+ year…
