From the same seller, right here in our town, we purchased this antique dresser and a little desk. I couldn't believe what great prices they were listed for. And spotless too.
The dresser is solid wood with dovetail drawers and lovely turned front legs. It was recently refinished but I now have to decide if it might look even better with some white paint.
This little desk is solid maple and made by Vilas (a Quebec, Canada furniture manufacturer well known for solid maple colonial style furniture.) It has a drawer and two little letter slots on the backboard. Not a scratch on it! I am pretty sure it is going to get a few coats of white chalk paint and light distressing. The desk would work well in a few places in our home, but I think it will go in our basement guest room.
So, would you paint the dresser white and distress it? I was thinking of leaving the top of both sections stained (all photos in the home of the seller.)
