The Sylvia Dresser - Custom Refinish Before & After

From totally rough and shabby to a new life shiny as a red apple. Ha!

We are awaiting the black handles to arrive but we could not wait to take pictures because this has already been picked up and ready for its new home!

I think this picture emphasizes the curves in the drawers so nicely!

Nothing like cleaning up an old dresser with curves and legs and keyholes. Thank you to Sylvia for letting us be a part of it all.

Mike informed me that our fireplace mantel has been completed and now to just haul it here and decide which wall it belongs on and get it mounted and ready to go. I am so excited to share the reveal!

Sweet cottage style pieces are my personal favorites! And this one is a lovely example!

Really different color there. Is it a red orange? Do you folks sand and prime your furniture first? I love the new white primer that is out there that you can paint right on top of the surface however it is.
Thank you,

This looks like the classic dresser! What a beautiful job you have done. Years ago almost every home in America had a dresser like this. Ann

The deep red color helps bring some masculinity to a feminine-shaped dresser. Great balance!

PERFECT shade of red. I love it. And you did such a great job on the painting. What a smooth finish.

Looks great! I have a question - I have a similar looking dresser in my garage waiting for it's turn to be re-habbed. It is missing one of the keyholes tho and I cannot seem to find a replacement one anywhere. Any brilliant ideas?? LOL
