Refined and Elegant Vintage

This beautiful dresser came to me through my cousin, who had it for years and now no longer had room for it.  Unlike so many discarded items I work with, this one was clean as a whistle inside.  The outside wasn’t actually in terrible shape, but it was in need of a little refreshing.

The dresser is solid wood and weighs just under a metric ton (ok, not that much, but it’s pretty darn heavy).
As with all pieces of this era, that shiny laminate type finish had to be sanded down to allow for new paint.

I must admit that the top wasn’t in this kind of condition when I got it, but it’s been kicking around in the garage so long that well…. it acquired some battle scars.  Not to worry, I knew what I was going to do with it.
