Due to her shorter stature we also found some nice wooden casters to place her on because she was really quite, ahem, heavy to move around. This dresser is truly a solid piece of art! While cleaning her up we even found a date written on one of the drawers, "Winter, 3/17/1938". We assume that might be when it was built or purchased. I'm calling her "Cowgirl", because, well with the Provence chalk paint and the beautiful wood we left alone it gives the appearance of some fine western apparel. I'm a little uncertain if I totally love the combination, but I had a truly difficult time even thinking about painting over the wood that was in good condition. The chipped veneers were another story. Thus the two-tone effect that is still bothering me a bit. So, look and tell me what you think!
Well, tell me what you think! Should I leave her alone and hope someone loves her as much as I do, or make her a more uniform, conforming dresser. I'm linking up to Primitive & Proper's Wednesday furniture party.
Have a great week!
