Welcome to our new blog!

navy and white dresserWe have finally decided to start a blog to document our adventures in picking, refurbishing, and bringing new life to old and antique furniture! We can’t wait to get started, and we are going to do our best to keep this blog updated with our newest pieces that will include details such as price, dimensions, paint colors, etc.

Today, we start out with one of our most recent (and favorite) pieces.  This beautiful dresser was manufactured by Drexel.  We painted it using General Finishes Antique White milk paint around the sides and edges.  The drawer fronts are painted in General Finishes Coastal Blue milk paint.  We refinished the top and stained it in General Finishes Antique Walnut gel stain.  And for the final touch, we redid all of the original hardware in bright gold.

This piece screams “nautical” to me! I was a little unsure about the paint colors we chose before we started, but once it was all put together I absolutely loved it.  The dresser is solid wood and has very high end construction, including dove tail drawers.  It measures 42″ wide, 21″ deep, and 35″ tall, and it is available for only $289 at the Funky Monkey Vintage Store in Madison, Alabama!
