Handmade Antique 4-Drawer Dresser

Project type

Antique 4-drawer dresser


June 2023


Houlton, Maine

This dresser was in rough shape. It had a large crack running through one side panel and the old varnish was hanging on for dear life. We sanded the entire dresser to bare wood and repaired the damage. We noticed the dresser was made with cut nails that original to the piece. We used two coats of chalk paint and applied a dark antique wax to warm it up. We changed out the circular wood drawer knobs for some sleek polished antique brass knobs. We finished it off with a clear top coat for added protection and conditioned the drawers so they slide nice and smooth. Now it's ready for sale!
