You all may have noticed the Dixie Hepplewhite Dresser hiding in the background of the pic I shared in last week’s post, My Thrift Store Haul. I was SO excited to find it. It is absolutely gorgeous and I love Dixie furniture as it is always so well made. This has the standard dovetailed drawers, lovely lines and those vintage Hepplewhite pulls. Unfortunately, a few of them are missing their actual pull piece that attach to the base. I think that I will remove them all and re-drill holes for new pulls to give the piece a totally different look. It is a lot more work but likely is what I will do.
What a beauty!
I’m just putting the finishing touches into my Boring Hallway Makeover! I shall share tomorrow. Let’s just say, cutting trim with a miter box is a new skill that I figured out in the process!
I’m sorry to say I have to give up your site! All these pop ups are crazy
Hi Kathy, I’m sorry to hear it. I do need to have ads on my site or I would not be able to continue doing what I do. Thanks so much and have a great weekend.
Great find; great piece! You won’t need the input but what you could do is: take all the good pulls and leave them in order – matching drawer for drawer and then on the ones that lack add new pulls/knobs say on the top two or four drawers – or perhaps add the new knobs to the four center drawers thereby leaving one row on top and one row on bottom of original pulls.
Hi Sharon – thanks for the idea! I am still contemplating where to take this one and appreciate your idea 🙂
Hi Suzanne! I just finished a gorgeous Dixie dresser myself, and guess what? It only had 5 out of the 10 necessary pulls. I had to remove them and replace with glass knobs. But … that means I have 5 of those pulls that need a good home. Mine seem to look exactly like yours. You can see them in this post: https://qisforquandie.com/2016/05/16/another-prize-winner/ If you haven’t proceeded with another plan, I’d be happy to measure them and send them to you if they are a fit.
Thanks so much! I am emailing you!
Hi there – just picked up this exact dresser earlier today. Have you finished yours up? Mine came with a mirror – not certain it’s original, but have no reason to not think it is.
Hi Andy, Yes, I finished it and it is now in my daughter’s room. You can search the post “blush dresser” and see it! Thanks and best of luck with your piece!
