There’s just not room enough to hold on to everything.
Since I have many other things from my Great Aunties, I’ve decided to let this dresser go. HOWEVER–I kept its fabulous beveled, oval mirror and offered up a free-standing mirrored, drawer ensemble as a replacement.
I bought this mirror at a big furniture store auction, and intended to use it in the LL-bathroom during renovations of mom’s house—but that project went in a different direction and the piece became orphaned–again.
It actually married up to this dresser really well!
*Yes, yes–only -HALF- dressed for the day and bed-head! ~Just focus on the pretty mirror!
I had to hustle on this project (space and the weather) and didn’t get a picture of the mirror before painting(sorry)it was just a medium brown-stained piece that had a “Shaker” look and I always intended to paint away that “style.”
As for the GOLD the dresser was finished in—it looked really beautiful in my former Mstr-bedroom (wish I could find where my pictures are packed to show you)! I painted the room a shade of taupe-y brown that is best described as a cup of coffee with lots of cream in it!
Since my Master bedroom was at the back of the house, east-facing, and over-looking the small lake I lived on, the saturated color was very peaceful and the gold dresser looked very rich! BUT–I didn’t think a new buyer would necessarily understand or appreciate the gold, soooooo. . .
OUT WITH THE gOLD and IN WITH THE NEW!
Here are some of the details—
I thought the dresser would look better with simple wooden knobs.
The paint is a very pale blue’ish GRAY and white– ♥

And now it’s off to the antique mall. . .
