1960's Turquoise and Black Dresser

I found this one at a yard sale. There were other pieces of furniture that were quickly getting nabbed because they were more attractive, but this one was getting overlooked. It was sturdy and the drawers glided smoothly. In fact the insides of the drawers were pristine! So I snatched her up and proudly brought her home.
I liked the legs and the little bar than runs across on the botom. I liked that the design "dated" this piece. I wanted to do a "retro" piece.
She's a lil boring. Needs matching drawer pulls.
Valspar Rushing Stream with high gloss top coat. New stainless drawer pulls painted black.
Inside of drawer. I'm still amazed how clean they were compared to the outside of this piece.
It doesn'tshow up very well, but the brass trim on the les and bar were painted black as well.
