Solid Oak Vintage Dresser

One of my customer’s was able to get her hands on this amazing, solid oak, vintage dresser and she knew a good thing when she saw it. All it needed was a fresh color and some new knobs! She settled on this beautiful grayish green color from Sherwin Williams called Oyster Bay. After adding some new crystal knobs, the piece was a knockout!

Large nightstand / Small dresser

This item has been sold IMG_7310
When I saw this dresser I knew it would make the perfect nightstand. The trend right now is to use small dressers as nightstands, and to mix them with other small tables. To go for the mismatched look. This small dresser would be a perfect fit in a bedroom that’s going for this look!

I chose a really soft, pale grayish blue, and gave it some very light distressing. It was finished off with 2 coats of wax which gives it a soft sheen. Not only is the piece great for a master bedroom, but it would also work as a dresser in a child or baby’s room. Or maybe you want to live on the edge and use it as a sideboard in your dining room. So many possibilities!

Traditional Cherry bedroom set

This item has been sold IMG_3279
The challenge with this bedroom set (dresser & 2 nightstands), was to remove the dated orangey-red stain color and give it a warm brown tone. Nothing too dark, and nothing too light. Toss out the dated brass drop pulls and throw on some new oil rubbed bronze pulls and voila, a modern bedroom set that’ll last for years! I think we hit it out of the ballpark. [Read more…]

Pine Dresser & Nightstand

This item has been soldPine dresser & nightstand
This vintage pine dresser and nightstand had been painted brown and the owner was hoping to go with a rich, dark brown stain instead. So I stripped it down to the bare wood, sanded it nice and smooth and then had to tackle all of the odd stains around the handle holes. Nothing that a little wood bleach can’t handle though!

Campaign furniture

Campaign dresser

Campaign dresser

I first saw a campaign dresser when I was looking for a hack for my Ikea nightstands. Campaign furniture was initially made for travel, by military personnel, to be used on military campaigns. Hence the name. I just loved the slightly industrial, vintage vibe it has. It looks great with the natural, stained wood, or painted. Right now, I’ve got my sights set on something that I can turn into a great, stained, campaign piece! So stay tuned.
