Curb Alert!

 I found this guy on a street near my house. Somebody was just throwing it out. Luckily I was on a walk not too far from home so I rushed back, dumped my kids on my neighbor, snagged her brother and truck and went and grabbed it! It was in great condition. A vintage Basset solid wood dresser with dove-tailed drawers. Stoked! I was looking for some less-chunky hardware but I couldn't find any in the quantity needed that I liked. So I just did a basic paint job and now I have a pretty new dresser for my bedroom.


Now on the the rest of the room. AAaaahhhhh!

  1. What a fantastic dresser rehab! It's so similar to a dresser that my friend Katie rehabbed recently to use as her tv stand. Great minds think alike!

    I love the candid photo of the bedroom. Mine is very similar these days too. :)

  5. Thank you! The color is Lotus Leaf (UL220-16) by Behr in the satin finish. I love this paint. I used a "furniture finish" small roller because the dresser has mostly flat surfaces. If it were more rounded I would use my pneumatic sprayer. Let me know if you have any other questions! I'm happy to help!

  6. Love this color! On a quest to find a true robin's egg blue. Will give this a try. Your "new" dresser is gorgeous.
