I first posted about my amazing find a few weeks ago. A gorgeous vintage, Drexel Heritage set. A lovely dresser and mirror that I had been searching for all summer. They are going to New York into a little girl’s bedroom and her mother had been patiently waiting months for me to find the right set.
I used Annie Sloan’s Old White on both the dresser and mirror. I added General Finishes Milk Paint in Antique White to the drawer fronts to add a little sheen and different light to the piece.The top had a thick, dark layer of lacquer that was stripped off using Citristrip and then sanded back to its gorgeous grain. I used Minwax pre-stain conditioner and their stain in Early American to give it a totally new life and look.The color of the stained top complements the warm white. It also ties in with both the drawer pulls and the distressed wood that peeks out.I fell in love with these pulls. Just gorgeous.Let’s not forget the mirror. It is full of curves that play off the curvy dresser. It also is large and in perfect condition to give off great light and reflection in a room.A beautiful, vintage set for a young, modern home! ♥
