I found this Neoclassical style dresser a few weeks ago and was thrilled. The drawers work perfectly, it is a fantastic length with wonderful lines and it will be amazing once painted!
The damage is pretty minimal and easy to fix and I really like the drawer pulls. I’m thinking a stained top and painted bottom.
It will be a gorgeous piece when done!
It’s beautiful! Great find, and I also love the hardware. Can’t wait to see it transformed.
Can’t wait to see the finished product!
Thanks so much! Working hard next week!

Thank you for the remarks about painted furniture. Every time I find a new piece to paint, my neighbor sees it in the garage and says, “OH!! You’re not going to PAINT that are you?” It hurts my feelings every time!!
I know – especially when you work hard on a piece just to have someone say they “shed a tear” when they saw it! Oh, well. To each his own 🙂 Paint on Ellen Jane!
This is a beautiful piece and I can see why some people would have difficulty painting it. At first glance it looks perfect, but the close up photos show otherwise. I too think it will be nice with a stained top and painted base. That way you can please everyone! 😉
Someday, 30 or 40 years down the road, someone will be blogging about the painted piece of furniture they just stripped and restored. Trends change and we each have our own tastes. I for one, can’t wait to see this piece when you’re finished. #Lovepainted!
I have seen a few really poorly painted pieces in the thrift store lately. It had to happen!
The only thing I might cry about is that I will probably never be able to paint a piece of furniture and have it look like anything you do..which is why I have a bunch of ugly unpainted furniture. hahaha
You are too kind! Thanks Wendy!

You are one lucky lady, Suzanne! That piece screams quality. I hope you didn’t have to put that one on your roof ! 😉 It looks heavy! Will be looking forward to seeing it’s transformation!
