Technically, this dresser wasn’t pulled from the dumpster, just the side of the road thanks to my ever watchful sister and bro-in-law.
It’s a pretty hum drum dresser, but I was really excited about the how it framed all of the drawers. This piece screamed “two tone!” I gained inspiration from the desk that I did for my house. I got a lot of comments on my blog post about this desk and it was even featured on another website.
I used the exact same color scheme. A soft sagey green with white drawers.
I painted the original hardware because I thought it stuck out like a sore thumb.
I also glazed the framework and drawers. But, instead of using my customary dark walnut stain, I opted for a more subtle provincial…which is like a golden oak. It was just enough to give some texture and depth to the color.
The drawers have faux lining already in them that looks like vintage newspaper print.
