Blue Antique Chest of Drawers

I’ve been really excited about this old dresser.  We found this curved top piece a few weeks ago, right around the same time we purchased our gray china cabinet, and as I was completing the hutch, I began brainstorming different refinishing ideas for this vintage beauty.

As I started to clean up and sand this piece, I finally settled on painting this a rich blue color.

I really loved the gold drawer pulls on this piece and thought the dark blue would enhance the look of this vintage hardware.  Plus I love the classy look of gold and blue together

I thought the smaller size, would make this the perfect dresser for aIMG_4179 (1) child’s bedroom.  The dark blue would compliment any child’s room.  Yet, this piece has so many other options as well.  The size would make it a perfect storage spot in a bathroom or office.  It would also shine in an entry space or living room.  IMG_4184 (1)

After painting this piece, I finished and sealed it with Annie Sloan’s clear wax.  This wax protects the paint finish, while also enhancing the color – which gives it a slightly deeper shade of blue.  Love this piece.  Visit us today to see this piece as well as our other available vintage pieces.
