The Frumpy One


I picked up this dresser a few weeks ago.  It was rather plain and frumpy but it was good and solid.  Kind of on the masculine side and the knobs were a complete mismatch.

So with a little paint, some wood appliques and glass knobs….it was looking more feminine and shabby.  Maybe not for everyone but much more to my taste.

It’s in the shop but I am somewhat tempted to bring it back home.  It would work great in the kitchen with the shallow top drawer for silverware and the two deeper ones for linens, etc.  Hmmmmm…..

I loved the curved bottom right off the bat! The wood appliques bring a new charm to it and so do the knobs...it is really a very cute piece!

It was sweet of you to stop by and let me know you liked my vintage dish lid towel holders!

Maureen,
Your dresser turned out so cute. I love the combo of glass knobs and shabby furniture. I think I would have a hard time letting this one go too! Great job1
