Cottage Library Dresser

WhiteBerry Reinvented May 29, 2010

Ughh, I am convinced that I have a camera ghost! I went to go retrieve the before shot of this dresser and there was nothing to be seen on my memory card. Or maybe Wren just got ahold of it the camera again…

It was just your standard, tacky, 70’s dresser with chunky gold hardware. Nothing new round here.

I used a white that has just a hint of cream to it. But I wanted a really silky finish to contrast with the distressing.

You all know about my affinity for library-esque hardware!! With chunkier pieces like this one I really love that look. And the pewter hardware is just the perfect finish to feel old and well-loved.

It was another brief love affair but it was great while it lasted, lovely dresser!
Hope your weekend isn’t as cold and wet as ours has been!!

    This is SO gorgeous Holly! I share your love of library-esque hardware! I am constantly amazed with the way you can turn ugly old furniture into beautiful pieces…you are definitely an inspiration! Have a great day :)

    Love the library pieces!!

    I have found the cup bin pulls but I cant seem to find the label pulls. Where did you get yours?

    That piece is stunning! I love the driftwood hanging above… I hope your weather improves!! We are lucky enough to be having wall to wall sunshine and temps in the 80's this weekend… Hope it comes your way~

    What a lovely piece – we have a similar chunky old dresser that we stained a glossy black and we just polished up the old hardware so it's more silver looking. Would love to get some beautiful pulls like the ones you used, it would completely change the look of it!
    We've had a HOT and sunny weekend… perfect for getting stuff done outdoors…
