This dresser is a great example of how you can make a few simple changes to use it
in your new seaside décor.
The original dresser was in great shape just very boring.
To start the seaside theme I cut and added a rope detail on the bottom front.
You see rope everywhere on boats and docks.
Vintage brass is a great feature use on seaside themed furniture. Brass doesn't rust and corrode like
other metal does in the salty air of the coast, so it is used all over marinas. After painting this
dresser in a blue and then a white wash I sanded the lock plates to show them off the brass.
The original dresser came with gold handles but the elaborate vintage brass Chippendales
I chose to use in their place are the perfect touch on these glossy waxed drawers.
The last piece that finished the look is the natural top, clear coated for protection
Hope this helps you with some of your beach decorating.
4 the love of WOOD is all about the adventures of re-purposing vintage furniture and recycling for home decor. I hope to inspire you to try your hand at up-cycling and provide you with a new perspective when looking at unwanted items.
