vintage Paris gray dresser

I don't know if I've ever posted this late - but I was so excited about my latest furniture redo, I couldn't wait!

I finally finished up the 9 drawer vintage dresser.  

This was it's look when I bought it:

I really love how it turned out.  When I was working on it, there were times that the light was shining on it, and it looked nearly white.  It's Annie Sloan's Paris Gray, with Pure White on the insets.  I didn't use any dark wax on this one- only the clear. 

As we were delivering this to the shop tonight, my eagle eye kiddo spotted what I had missed the entire time I had it.  Another Thomasville piece!!  I couldn't believe it!  The mark is inside one of the drawers.
The dove tail joints and other features showed me that this was a quality piece, but somehow that little stamp eluded me.

Check out a couple cool features in two of the drawers:

Neat, huh?
This is a really long dresser- 64"and I think it would be so pretty besides just using it in a bedroom.

This has just a bit of distressing on the edges:

And the crystal lamps are finally here too!  I've been holding them back until they were paired with the dresser.

I added a pretty, ruched shade to these.  They aren't vintage, but they are stunning, regardless.
(and hey! there's the mirror!)

This was such a fun one to complete.  I hope it goes home with someone soon!
It's in my space at Aunt Bee's House if you want to see it in person.

  6. Wow Denise! This is just gorgeous! The styling is lovely too! Wasn't it difficult to hold back the lamps? I always struggle with that...setting something fabulous aside for the perfect vignette. Nice job, girlfriend!
    Best wishes and blessings,

  7. Just adore this! I have not had your luck with Annie Sloan paint. It did not go on smooth. What did I do wrong? Does the weather affect it?
