Vintage White Dresser with Mirror

Hey…how’s everyone doing today?  Today is actually my designated day-off but I just can’t help myself, I needed to share my most recent makeover!!!  This beautiful vintage dresser has made it’s way into my heart and home.  It’s now sitting pretty in our master bedroom.  It may or may not make into my next Vintage Market.  I’m hoping to stock up on several pieces like this between now and then (that way I can keep one for myself)!  I decided to keep this one simple…looking yummy in solid white and distressed by the all powerful sander.  When choosing white, I always have to paint three coats for maximum coverage.  It takes a little longer but I’m always happy with the results.

Solid as a rock with all the original knobs, always a bonus!
