Vintage Green Dresser

There is an old farmhouse at the top of my subdivision that has been marked for demolition. It sits off of the road and it has been there long before my little neighborhood was built. My husband was driving home and he saw a garage sale sign. He stopped to talk to the owner, came home to grab me, and we went back and made friends with the owner. The owner had 15 days until the house was going to be demolished so he was ready to part with some things.

This dresser was sitting in a shed and he didn't want to part with it right away but... two days later I got a phone call from him asking me to make an offer.



I used this same color on a table I did for a client (click here to see that post) and I loved it so much I wanted to paint something else in green.

I used Cliveden Pasture by Valspar and used a black glaze to darken it a little.
I stripped the top and there is some gorgeous wood grain showing.
I was going to use the original pulls but one was broken so I had to replace them with pulls from Hobby Lobby.

I love how this piece turned out!

What do you think?
