Mid Century Highboy Dresser Makeover

This makeover has a special meaning. Mid Century Blonde 1950, all wood highboy dresser had been lovingly refinished with all the original hardware. I used a very neutral color so as to fit all decorating styles.

This piece is part of a large set, which consist of a large dresser and mirror. I'll share some the the details on the refinishing process..

Here's the Before

A very solid sturdy piece ... just needed some color updating. Structurally everything was sound.I was amazed how the hardware cleaned up to a beautiful original color patina. They just don't make furniture like this anymore.


Here she is ... all dressed up ready for a new home. The color is my custom blend, I call Drop-cloth because its' not stark white and not a beige. It's very neutral for a Farmhouse or Primitive style decorating. She's all ready for a new home and new stories.
