Believe it or not, I have done this exact same dresser before (here)! About a year ago I found and fell in love with this dresser and painted it a turquoise/blue
So when I saw the same dresser again, I snapped it up super fast!
I decided to paint this one out white, which was very similar to a similar style of dresser I painted (here) which also had beautiful hardware. I used a pure white and did many coats. I absolutely adore the vertical hardware, and the ornate raised detailing.
Getting the paint into all of that raised detailing took ALOT of work! I think each drawer took about 8 minutes to paint per coat! Very time consuming, but the end result looks great.
I custom added the legs, which is something I didn't do to the other version of this dresser I did. I love the extra height it gives. The dresser now stands at over 35" tall. I like the extra versatility it gives, as it no longer looks only like a dresser. It could easily be used in another room.
I used a technique on the hardware to get a pewter type of look by spray painting with silver and than glazing with black. It contrasts nicely with the white.
Lots of pictures, I know!
There are six drawers, all very large. I love that when they are closed you almost think they are cupboards, than you open up and go 'wow, these are drawers not cupboards!' Very exciting. ;)
Here is a close up of the hardware, all the blackish bits are where the glaze really got into the grooves and divots.
And of course, the before! I remembered to snap a pic.
