Vintage Red Dresser

Hey there everyone!  
 I spent a good chunk of my week working on custom orders and General Finishes Holiday Red was, by far, the most requested color.
This is such a pretty, pretty red. And, I say this not being a huge fan of red, but this just has that prefect true color to it without the undertones of orange or blue.

While dressers used to be one of my top furniture pieces to paint, they have been kind of scarce in the last several months. So, when I found this one while out furniture shopping I was super excited. It was in structurally fantastic condition and just needed a little cosmetic work.

And the details are gorgeous.
Look at those carved feet!

I finished this piece with wax for a true, hand finished vintage feel.


This weekend we are planning on hitting up a whole new to us grouping of stores. I'm wicked excited to see what awesome pieces we bring home!


  1. Beatiful Angela! Terrific shade of red!

  2. Gorgeous! I'm dying to try a red dresser - do you keep yours or do you sell them after posting? My only worry is that it won't coordinate with anything in my house and I won't be able to sell it when it's finished.... but yours is SO fantastic!
    Found you through Between Naps on the Porch - thanks for sharing!

  3. I love the pop of red Angela! And the new knobs really give it a fresh new feel too! ... Featured you at our party this morning. Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. That is a stunning shade of red. I love it!


Thank you so much for stopping by Number Fifty-Three! I look forward to your comments.
