I came across this ANTIQUE dresser last week and could not wait to paint it country red and antique it will an awsome dark stain. It is an old Western Dresser, complete with the original brass horseshoe drawer pulls.
It has gold paint undertones that gives it a more rustic look. I am not sure where it will go this week, if there is room in the shop it will surely go there, if not it will go to Re-Creations Tuesday or Wednesday. dont you love the original brandings on each corner?

Hi Brenda,
I really love that dresser. That color is one of my favorites. In its simplicity it is still unique.

That is a great piece. I can just see it with some of that western restaurant china sitting on a tray on top. What a nice find.
