Old White French Provincial

73"W x 31 1/2"H x 21D

This may be the cleanest dresser I've ever bought, was solid wood with dovetail drawer joints, and was in almost perfect condition.  It had a couple of scratches and the top needed to be re-stained.  I painted it in Old White, distressed, and sealed with clear wax.  Original hardware was painted with oil rubbed bronze, the top was stripped and re-stained with dark walnut and sealed with Minwax water based oil modified poly which you can use on floors!  This was the first time I tried this poly and loved it - it dries super fast, goes on easily, and sands smooth.  When I went to pick it up, it was on the second floor of a condo and this thing is long!  Fortunately there was a guy that worked at Fedex there to buy something else and was nice enough to help the seller and I maneuver it down 2 narrow flights of stairs.  :)
