Brazillian Dresser

Saturday, 9 February 2013

I haven't finished anything that I'm extra excited about recently, but this dresser is a game changer!

My friend Cris, who is from Brazil, emailed me a few weeks ago saying she needed to get rid of a dresser because she was moving. But she explained that it was "very heavy". Being that I've been schlepping furniture around for 2+ years, I figured "no problem". Uh huh. With the drawers in, Cris and I couldn't even budge it. I called my super-husband and he came by to help us get it in my car.

This dresser is the best made piece I've ever worked on. Amazing wood and plank bottom drawers that are pristine!

Here is the before:

Here she is today. I wanted to preserve the orignal wood where possible. Both of the sides had started splitting vertically, but had been reinforced inside to prevent it falling apart...so no matter how hard I cranked on the vice, that wood was not going back together. So,I filled the cracks with wood filler. Some paint and pulls from Anthropologie completed this beauty!

Aged in all the right places!

Swooning over the beauty inside the drawers!

I am seriously giddy over this one. It puts a smile on my face!
