Classic Black

Good morning all.

We had to do the plant dance last night and move a lot of our plants inside our garage and into our front hallway because of the frost that snuck up on us. Spring is funny like that, 30+ degrees on Monday and 5 degrees on Wednesday evening. Anyways our front hall looks like a greenhouse with planters piled everywhere. Sammy thinks he's a jungle cat.

A simple before and after for you today.

A solid oak dresser with a missing previous mirror that left large holes in the top and some surface scratching that needed repair. Nothing major that could keep this solid boy from continuing its life.

This dresser feels like a Horace or an Edward. Very classic traditional but could be a chameleon with modern decor.

looks a tad streaky with the light but it isn't. common problem when having light from one side only and not the time to fix it for a proper photo shoot.

this dresser was finished totally with general finishes products this time.

lamp black milk paint

general finishes finishing liquid wax.

light distressing

original hardware

for all you layer lovers, a closeup of the vignette

check out the massive loving cup from the 30's we found. it has taken a lot of patience to get it this far. someone tremclad'd this beauty and it was a solid coat of bronze paint


This beauty has moved into the store today and will keep us company until finding a new home. He is 275.00 if anyone is interested.

Have a good day everyone,
