Vintage Yellow Dresser

Here's one for all you yellow lovers out there. A 9 drawer dresser and nightstand made all all VERY heavy wood. I think this is the heaviest dresser I have ever encountered. I can't even lift the nightstand myself and I consider myself a pretty tough cookie.

I painted this set with Arles yellow chalk paint, a brown valspar glaze and wipe on polyurethane to finish it off.

My favorite part of this dresser is its uniqueness. I love the one of a kind hardware. It has some great carving and designs.

A very sweet family friend gave me this dresser and nightstand to refinish. I never saw it before sending my hubby to pick it up. When he came home he told I was going to laugh when I saw it. I thought "oh no" what could possibly be wrong with it.

I walked outside peered over the bed of the truck and there was a perfectly good bedroom set. The ironic thing was just a week or two before I had the matching armoire that I had just sold. Isn't that how things work sometimes. How cool would it have been to have the whole matching set!

This bedroom set will be for sale in my shop. If you are interested please contact my using the above button!
