dresser dark & handsome

I have an oldie but a goodie to share tonight. It’s our dresser. Much like the nightstand I talked about here.

I was inspired by this kitchen island designed by Bill Ingram. dark and handsome, right? right.

I’m a big believer in working with what you have so we took Blake’s old dresser which matched this bedroom suite.

As far as I’m concerned…a dresser is a dresser…switch out the color and the drawer pulls and things look completely different. I stained this and put some brass pulls on and now we have this.

After the stain I put on a coat of Howard’s Feed N Wax which I completely swear by! You can buy this at any home improvement store and it’s cheap and worth it! It makes EVERYTHING look better 🙂

I remember the first night this was completed I just gazed at it dreamily for an hour.

    My dear sweet friend, Penny, just gave me a bottle of this. I have been dying to try it out on a great piece of furniture. It looks awesome on your dresser!
