Mademoiselle Dresser

We've scored a slew of French Provincial dressers lately...
seems like it's feast or famine, and they typically sell so quickly...
we snatch them up whenever we see a great one

We're incredibly particular with our pieces...
they must be solid wood, preferably circa 1960 or earlier
with stand-out details that make them special

This dresser certainly met the criteria!



So heavy...solid wood cut nice and thick!
It's made by Dixie, circa 1950's...
before Dixie started using 
laminate and particle board

Check out the details...




Kenny spent lots of time
making sure each and every drawer
(there are NINE!)
looked like new...


We've been having a bit of a love affair with brighter, richer colors lately....
but for this piece, we went back to our "roots" so-to-speak
my first loves, Paris Grey and Old White
From Annie Sloan, of course!

Love this dresser?
It's for sale in our Etsy Shop
