I bought this dresser very cheaply last week. It's a bad photo but the dresser was also in a really bad way.
It was very wobbly and the back piece of wood was falling apart - the bit of wood that stabilises drawers, so I pulled it off and replaced it, screwed it in nice and tight and now it's all very sturdy. The mirror was also badly scratch so
i pulled the whole piece off. I prefer it as a chest of drawers rather than a dressing table anyway.
Last week when my friend gave me a hand, we stripped it down and primed it. I painted it white and then drew a mental blank at what to do next. My husband suggested a fleur de lis or damask flourish but this piece is very rustic and not really French so I started looking through my blog lists and found Miss Mustard Seed's bird cabinet. Just perfect for my chest of drawers. So with a soft french grey, I painted by hand the branches and little bird.
I'm really happy with this now and will take it to my stall tomorrow.
