This antique dresser started off in pretty rough shape. I usually steer clear of anything that requires too much cosmetically because I'm not a huge fan of copious amounts of sanding and filling. Regardless of the condition, this was one I couldn't pass up.
Here it is before.
I also do my best to reuse original hardware. I find it difficult to recoup the new cost of hardware on most resells if something requires more than a couple pieces. However, with this dresser, there was no way to make the old hardware fit the vision I had for the end result. I was fortunate enough to find some blood-orange knobs at Anthro that fit the bill. I'll take eight please.
The color is BM Sweatshirt Gray followed by the Wiping Stain used here.
