Another Jack


I painted this dresser with a mix of Paris Grey and Graphite, used Pure White for the stripes and clear wax to seal.  The inside of the drawers have been painted blue. It had ugly brass knobs (not original) when I got it so I put glass knobs on because I like a little sparkle :), but you could change out the hardware for a more masculine look.  This is such a versatile size dresser.  It would make a great changing table in a nursery, as a dresser in a bedroom, or even a foyer.  It is a vintage solid piece with dovetailed drawers that work perfectly and wood dust catchers between each drawer.  Has a top drawer that locks, if you find a key.  I usually have good luck at antique stores, but didn't look for one this time.  This piece measures: 45"W x 20"D x 34"H
