Great Grandmother's Dresser

For my birthday I inherited this beautiful dresser from my Grandmother, and come to find out, it was once her mothers. It will have its new home in our master after it stops raining or warms up (side bar: why does that always happen? The warm days in winter are always plagued with rain, so all hope of getting outside in the fresh air flies right out the window?)
As of right now, it's sitting in our sun room.

Anyway, I thought I would post the before pics, and while I like the white, the paint job is a little shotty and it needs a few fill ins!




Don't mind my reflection in the handle of this one!


That's all for now... back to the guest room to slave away!

  1. Hi Jessica! Happy Saturday :-). Just wanted to make sure you received my e-mail because I've had people not received them before because they've gone to junk mail. Didn't want you to think I didn't respond. Have a good weekend.

  3. CaN'T wait to see what and how you do it. I wanted you to know that my g.grandma had a dresser like this and I redid it but when I took the hardware off I saved it. I use them as napkin rings. They are funky and cute. I roughed them up so they wouldn't be brassy. Just wanted to share that in case you were going to change out the hardware.

    I am up in the air about the hardware. it will clash if i keep it and it remains in its brassy glory, but i really like to keep it authentic while giving it a more up to date look. It will be a little while until i can get back outside and paint (hard to pain in 65 degree rain, or 34 degree sun). we need to transform our car port to a garage asap!
