We saw this piece on a local sale site and I immediately jumped at the chance to bring it into the workshop. It was beat up but we took it down to raw wood and came up with a plan to restore it.
We have a similar style long dresser in our nursery and the combination of deep drawers, quick access bins and shelves for baskets makes this a really functional piece that works in a bedroom or living room.
The finish scheme we came up with for this is a classic grey-blue base with a warm weathered grey top and drawers. The right side will get weathered gray baskets and the center drawers will be accented with antique cast iron cup pulls.
We have a plan to have both this dresser and the farmhouse armoir done for this weekend. Let us know if you want to come take a look!
