I don’t come across super duper bleached wood dressers often, so I was really charmed by this antique piece. It ended up sitting on my to-do list for over 6 months, which actually isn’t as long as some that are yet to be worked on, but I was excited to get to it because I had a plan in mind right from the start.
A chalky cream paint, worn down in areas and rubbed into the wood in others, feels fresh, but not new.
To me, nothing feels more “beachy” than old pewter. I love that the shell pulls mimic the arch of the bottom feet.
I wanted the grain of the wood to peek through since it has a beautiful color and the wood is all cut on the diagonal.
