Remember the lovely tall dresser I picked up a while back and took its photo in the snow?
I pulled it out of storage for its makeover last weekend. The shape of this dresser says ‘gentlemen’s chest’ to me. Usually the taller dresser in a set was meant for the gent (sorry, couldn’t resist that bad rhyme). I could easily have gone more feminine on this piece though, with those pretty curvy legs at the bottom. But I was feeling the masculinity of this piece and went with MMS milk paint in Artissimo, which is a rich navy blue (finished with Cece Caldwell’s clear wax, which has rapidly become my favorite wax to work with). I stripped the top and then just waxed it with the Cece Caldwell’s dark wax.
After adding a vintage suitcase and my dad’s old Tarzan books, I was getting the feeling that this dresser had a sense of adventure.
Then I added some old sheet music inside the upper drawer.
And now this dresser is ready to sail the seven seas!
How about you, are you ready for some adventure?
