This beautiful dresser was exactly what I had been looking for to give our master bedroom that soft Victorian romantic look. When we found it, it had already been stripped. But DH, being the perfectionist that he is, did some extra stripping & we found it had originally had a lt. blue & a white finish on it at different times. We stripped it down to its pine glory then minwaxed it, & that is how it stayed for about 8 years.
When we redid our bedroom a couple of years ago, I debated & fretted about whether to paint it white. DH threatened me as he usually does, said I had better be REAL sure I wanted it white as he was NEVER going to strip it again, yada yada, yada. So here it is in all its white glory & I'm so glad I decided to paint it!!
The mirror is showing very early signs of ghosting, has intricate beaded trim all around, & I love that it tilts on such a beautiful framework.
It has an inset on the top that I placed some cottage green floral fabric in & had a piece of glass cut to fit across.
I fell in love with the twisted rope trim and appliques on the doors. Even the keyholes are cute ~ can you tell how much I love this find?!?!
I just can't wait to get back home from church today & visit all you other girls & see your great finds! This is just so much fun!
And a big HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the dads out there today. I miss mine dearly, but cherish all the happy memories I have.
