Before and After: White Midcentury Dresser

Excited to share one of our newest listings with you.  This dresser, originally made by the Hooker furniture company, had a great retro look.  These pieces usually stand out in the vintage stores and really would look amazing without any refinishing at all.  Here’s the before photo of this piece. See?  This piece was cool.… Continue reading Before and After: White Midcentury Dresser

Update: MidCentury Paloma

Not too long ago we introduced you to our Paloma Highboy in a post here.  After refinishing both the dresser and hardware in Annie Sloan’s chalk paint and posting it, I couldn’t shake the feeling that it wasn’t quite finished yet.  I loved the subtle lavender color yet the hardware just wasn’t doing it for… Continue reading Update: MidCentury Paloma
