STACKING DRESSERS

 
 
This is a photo taken in my dressing room of two stacked dressers.
I really enjoy these dressers and many have asked about them after seeing them in the
background of some recently posted photos. To get the storage I needed I stacked them. It's
 not common to find a pair of identical vintage dressers so I took advantage of the opportunity.
 
 

 
Here is what they looked like when I brought them home. They were a real mess.



I stripped everything off the tops to find this beautiful soft wood ...


and I didn't stop there. I stripped almost every other surface on both dressers.
I did not use chemicals on these I sanded them with power tools.


 
I gave both dressers a white wash and added cast iron plaques to the drawers
so that I can label the drawers using chalk.
 
 
The top drawer was too high to use as a drawer so I turned it into a hinged door.

 
 

I left a little strip of the original paint on the drawer edges cause I liked the rustic feel of it.


 
It has been years since I fixed these up for the dressing room and I still love them to this day.
Not fancy but super chic!
