Vintage Dresser Re-Do Reveal

Hey guys, I finally completed the vintage dresser. I thought long and hard whether I should paint the mahogany or not. I'm so pleased w/ how it turned out... It's pretty BLACK!

Although, look at what I was working with HERE

I filled in the cracks and dents, but not too much since I was painting it black I wanted to keep some roughness. I don't know, just made sense to me and I really love how it turned out. (Sorry bout the grainy cell pics on the photos below)


It's simple and it only took about a week to finish it up.

I've listed my process here.

I found it at the GW for $3.00. It is an Estey Furniture dresser. I looked every where for information and the only thing that I was able to find is that it originated in the 1800's. I'm not quite sure what the exact date on this dresser is, but if you have any idea please, please, please let me know...

I went w/ the glass knobs, since I have so many of them why not use them right?


I love the legs on this dresser. So dainty and feminine!



Don't look so bad for being a $3.00 dresser, right? LOL



Psst! can you believe after all that work it has a bottom sticky drawer LOL

Love the piece! BTW...many times a sticky drawer can be solved by rubbing the edges (or the guide bar thingy) with a bar of soap. Hope this helps!
