Vintage Three Drawer Dresser in ASCP Old White

This vintage three drawer dresser was a garage sale find from a neighbouring street that I picked up in September. I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.


It is a solid wood piece and has four original little casters. I chose to keep the original pulls but sprayed them silver for a bit of an update.


There are some cute details like the double waterfall top and a little built in corner piece in the top drawer for coins or something small. I considered distressing this chest of drawers, or adding some text details, but plain sells the best here.


 I did paint the drawers in a fun turquoise for a pop of colour.


I've had wear problems with wax and Old White in the past, and since it is a resale piece I went with a satin poly protection.


Maybe it will find a new home soon.

I hope you had a great weekend. Are you busy decorating for Christmas, still too early, or have you finished? I started decorating for Christmas three weeks ago and I'm almost finished. I do a bit each night after work and on the weekends. I also made some ornaments and sewed new pillow covers, a table runner and white twill stockings for our family room. More Christmas photos to come!

  1. That is really a sweet piece, Elizabeth. With that waterfall edge I am thinking 1940's? My mil had a whole set of it. You did a wonderful job and I bet it finds a new home soon. xo Diana
