The Hannah Dresser - Before & After

Dimensions:
72" Wide . 30" Tall . 20" Deep
Before
After
We just finished this elegant vintage Hannah Dresser this morning! It has been painted in a deep carmel color and then distressed. I love the exquisite details on this dresser. The door and bottom of have a timeless border that makes it one of a kind. It has dovetail drawers and delicate features on each drawer that give it a very unique look and feel. The middle door has three drawers hidden behind it for extra storage. This really is an exclusive style that we rarely find.

I love, love old vintage furniture! And this piece fits right in the category. And for those of you that like having pieces in your home that you will not see anywhere else . . . this one it one of those treasures!
Today we have some exciting things happening. We are picking up a four piece wall unit for a custom refinish. It will be our biggest project yet! It is going to be gorgeous and I cannot wait to show before and after pictures.

I REALLY want the Hannah Dresser! I just have to convince my hubby and do some measurements!! Keep me posted on other interested buyers. I'm also looking for 2 matching twin kids beds - if you happen to find any, let me know!

Very cool. The distressing is great. I like how you replaced the knob in the middle of the bead board (?) as well.

Wow, I am excited to see you re-did this dresser. I have the exact one, plus the two matching end tables and armoir. I refinished the armoir in an avocado green with smoke glaze this summer and as soon as it warms up, I'll be painting the dresser and end tables white. It really is a beautiful piece.
