The Brooks Dresser - Before & After

Remember this dresser? I had intended for this piece to be a part of our yard sale and then when it was completed I decided to keep it. Sometimes something feels like it belongs in our home. And this was one of them.

Before
AfterI love the details on this dresser! The top two drawers are divided from the four bottom drawers by a very unique wood piece. We kept the original hardware because it is chunky and fabulous! The placement of the hardware on the top two drawers is different than the rest which gives extra depth and dimension.
Yep, I am very happy with the newest addition to our home!

Next up is a custom barstool project Mike completed yesterday. I want these chairs. I hope our client is happy with her finished project. Mike is also completing a black dining set for another client. It is a pedestal table and six chairs that is being finished to match The Krew Hutch we completed a few weeks ago.
Plus - we have another Giveaway coming up!

Happy Thursday!

Wowza! That looks great!! I really want to repaint our vanity/dresser, but it was actually my husband's before we met and I'm not sure I can talk him into it. Maybe I should show him these photos.

This piece is gorgeous!! I can see why you would keep it!

We're out of town otherwise I would have that house information to you. As soon as I get back. It's on 1950 South (I think... the street south of Reading Elementary) HUGE garage workshop (at least it looks like that from the street). I will get back with you when I get home next week.

Really nice update. I have some hardware exactly like that on an antique oak wash stand and just love it.
Hey! I found a link to your blog (and mine too!) on a RUSSIAN website. I’m sending the site and I also translated it with Babelfish translator. Thought you might get a kick out of this. Too funny!
