It is all done and in the shop. A lovely antique 3 drawer golden oak dresser. This piece was produced between 1890 & 1920. It is solid oak with a full set of cast brasses. During the restoration I decided that I liked the lived in look of the top and chose to just bring it back to a usable condition rather than strip away all of the character. I did however have to create a new backsplash as it was missing. Originally the piece probably had a wishbone towel bar. The dresser measures 35 1/2″ wide by 17″ deep by 32′ high to the top and 34 1/2″ to the top of the backsplash. The dimensions of this dresser make it a good choice for someone looking to transform it into a vanity base for a vessel sink.
Once again this week I’m highlighting a piece of furniture that I’m in the process of restoring for our “Pick of the Week”. My current project is a very nice late Victorian Oak 3 Drawer Dresser. I have had this piece for quite a while. When I purchased it from a local auction it was missing one drawer pull. It took a year or so but I finally found a match. Now with a full set of brasses I am ready to restore it. This picture is after cleaning and cabinet work. If everything goes well it should be in the shop in a few weeks.
This week we have a new piece of furniture to highlight. Our “Pick” is a lovely, diminutive, Victorian, 3 drawer walnut dresser. This piece measures 29″ wide by 16″ deep by 28 3/4″ high. It’s small size makes it useful as a night stand, child’s dresser or guest room dresser. With a little modification it could also be converted to a bath vanity. A very popular use currently.
Also on a side note we have lots and lots of new vinyl. Get it while it’s hot.
