Before and After: A Unique Nautical Dresser
Such a fun and interesting piece! This dresser was brought to me by a client to be customized as a surprise gift to her mom. The dresser belonged to her grandma originally and was just waiting to have a little makeover done.
Love the sail boat on the inset panel, anchor pulls and the wheel detail at the bottom! So so neat!
Had some pretty good scratches on the top with a little water damage. My client wanted to lighten the piece up a lot but still have a wood/refinished top.
After stripping the top, I sanded it down to the bare wood
It looks very white here, but it's actually a mix of General Finishes Snow White and Miss Mustard Seeds Linen 50/50 mix.
I also had a wood worker make another turned knob for the wheel. We had to saw one off so he could make the last one the exact same size.
Distressed at the edges
Put this super fun anchor paper in the drawers!
Love that she picked this paper
The final result!! What a lovely piece to work on , I felt honored to give this unique dresser a facelift!
