The Rorik Dresser - Before & After

Dimensions:

38" Wide . 35" Tall . 19" Deep

Before
After Isn't this just the most wonderful little dresser ever! I just cannot help myself with these vintage beauties that sit up on legs. It is so hard for me to let them go. I think they are super functional and can be moved from room to room and used in so many different ways. I adore the height of this piece. I love the long legs that are joined by a wood beam between the front and the back. The decorative element at the base is unique and so charming.

I picture this dresser as a side table next to a big bed. It could be used in a family room next to a sofa or a greeting table in a entry way. This piece could be used in a bathroom as extra storage for linens and towels. Have I convinced everyone yet how perfect these little treasures can be! Up next we have three different mirrors that are lovely and elegant.

And I know . . . I know . . .

I need to reveal the barnwood table. I have hestitated because of my indecisiveness on the chair covers. However, it is coming soon.


Happy Thursday!

Beautiful! But I have to ask, HOW did you fix the missing veneer?

Pam said...

The redo on this is fabulous! But I gotta second Korrie - can you show us or tell us how you fixed the problem of the missing veneer? Pam @ Sallygoodin

Another beautiful piece! I bet it is hard to let them go, I know I would have a very hard time with it. You need to build an addition to put your finished work! :)

This would be adorable in my entryway! It turned out so cute. I like the pieces up on legs, because they give the appearance of not taking up as much room. Cute...very cute!

What a lovely save on this dresser. The chipped spots may have put others off, but you rescued and made it pretty! Thanks for sharing.
