Recently I posted about this dresser. I found it at a resale shop and I think I bought it simply because I felt sorry for it. It was so ugly.
Originally my intention was to use it in our Lower Level Family Room as a Buffet Server for parties.
I ended up really liking it after it was re-finished. So, this weekend I recruited my 11 year old daughter (Aka, my design assistant) and we hauled it up the stairs into the Formal Dining Room/Home Office.
Not only does it provide a well needed pop of color but it will be a great Serving Buffet for Formal Dinners. Since this room has a dual purpose, it will be a perfect place to store office supplies and design files when I need to use it as my Home Office.
I do not know the history behind this piece. I do not believe it is an antique or holds any value. I think it may be a replica of a piece like this one over at Natty By Design. She also painted hers vibrant red.
Here is what it looked like when I rescued it...
(I warned you that it was ugly)
I know one thing for sure, it is very, very, very heavy...just ask my back :)
Thanks for visiting!
