Vintage Maple Dresser: Should we have went with black?
My partner and I bought this lovely dresser which was covered with a very bad white shiny paint job. He stripped and sanded to bare wood and then painted with a urethane enforced white satin paint. The top, side panels and drawers were stained with a custom tint and then hand-rubbed to a satin finish with oil. Vintage style antique brass pulls were added and she has turned into a french country beauty. One question: Would you have used black instead of white? I thought black would have been dramatic and maybe appeal to more people.
