Nautical Curved Top Dresser

I typically get an idea for a piece shortly after it arrives and about 90% of the time I stick with that original plan and see it through.  This wasn’t the case for this antique curved top dresser.  I have been looking for one for ages, similar to our blue curved top dresser we did… Continue reading Nautical Curved Top Dresser

Blue and White

Here’s a look at our two newest listings.  We are so excited about both of these pieces.  The blue highboy is truly from a long ago era, but this pop of color really gives it a fresh, modern look.  The knobs on this antique dresser, from Anthropologie, add a bit more color and uniqueness to… Continue reading Blue and White

Blue Antique Chest of Drawers

Here are a few before photos of this small,… Continue reading Blue Antique Chest of Drawers
