I found this wonderful dresser/cabinet at the flea market a couple of weeks ago. It was already painted black, but the paint job was awful. I have never seen a dresser quite like this before although I have seen vintage dressers that have been encased in cabinets with shelves as well. This sweet little cabinet is very compact and would even be a great entertainment cabinet in a bedroom with the flat screen TV on top.
The inside needed painting because it was still oak inside. All it took to transform this gem was a little paint on the inside and a lot of sanding on the outside to bring out its character. I put some numbers on the drawers and I wish I would have used a color other than antique white for the numbers, but all in all I think it turned out all right. My photos are showing a lot of glare because of the lighting. I see a huge shadow on the inside of the door in the next photo.
I love the details of the cabinet itself and the wood showing through gives it a nice aged look with a lot of character.
Thanks for your visit.
