The Red Dresser Part II



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!

  11. very nice job! I'm working on a similar project myself just now and am keeping my fingers crossed that it will turn out as pretty as yours. I like the height and weight of a large dresser in the dining room too - from what I can tell in your photos, the furniture seems proportionate to the dimensions of your room. Awesome all the way around!
