Vintage Dresser Make-over

A month ago we re-did our vintage dresser that was a blah white that didn't match our style at all. Under the white was a really nice wood, back in the 50's they used real wood to make furniture wish we could say that now days!, so we stained it with a dark ebony stain. The hardware for small drawers were easy to find, but for the big drawers, it was an issue. Finally I found some and they just came in today! So here is the final look to our 1950's dresser! Now on to the bed that matches....

 Sloan was already taken drawers before I could get a quick picture!


It's actually more black than the photos came out, I'm being lazy and just snapped them quick without setting changes or anything on my editing either :)


  1. Kendra, sure wished you live closer to me! You are so talented! I could use some ideas and help with my 100 year old house remodeling and decorating. The dresser is beautiful!

  2. WOW! That is a big difference and its so nice! You did a great job!

  3. Thanks y'all! :) It was alot of fun doing it! I can't wait to get the bed done, that is the project this week since hubby is finally off work! I could sand it myself, but it's better to make the men do it right?! haha
    Heather - If I lived closer trust me i would help you out! I enjoy doing this sort of thing :)
