Antique Two-Toned Dresser

I have a really special dresser to share with you all today! My husband and I worked like crazy yesterday getting our garage situated for our next furniture sale on October 13th.

One piece that we both worked on was this absolutely gorgeous antique dresser. It is huge, provides tons of storage and has the most amazing feet. And...if you are a long time reader, you may recognize it from my very own entry.

We recently updated our entry and wanted something with similar lines, but a smaller scale for the space. (I can share the full entry reveal with you next Sunday!)

So, after much thought, we decided to part with this dresser. The makeover was relatively simple. The look of the drawers are beyond amazing and in fantastic condition so I left them as is. The body of the dresser had some loose and chipped veneer which needed to be addressed, however. We sanded, glued, patched, sanded and then I got down to painting.

Remember when I painted that Dark Chocolate Sideboard with General Finishes Milk Paint?  Well, when they sent me that color they were also nice enough to send me a second, called Persian Blue. It's a gorgeous, rich neutral that paired nicely with the deep wood of the dresser.

I just painted one coat, let it dry and heavily distressed it for a time worn look.

I just adore how this dresser came out! And, it will be available next weekend at our vintage sale.

Lastly, do you recognize the wreath? It was my easy bittersweet wreath I made last fall and it has held up beautifully! You can read all about it here.
