Jacobean Style Dresser

Hello!

I have been busy hoarding gathering furniture and other fun things for the August sale at Carver Junk Company. Along with that, I've had some custom work and have been BUSY. As of right now, my garage is at capacity....a good thing, but stressful!

I recently grabbed this at a garage sale:



The details were amazing and I wanted to try to save the top. I'm not 100% sure about having some drawers painted and others not, but I *think* I really like it. I couldn't paint those 2 lower drawers...they weren't damaged enough ;)



It's updated, but still has vintage flare!




How could I paint this wood?











So, do I paint the drawers or leave as is?

How GORGEOUS!!!
I can't believe I'm going to say this ( and if you knew me you'd know why )
BUT DO NOT PAINT THE WOOD!!!!
It's absolutely perfect the way it is. What an incredible transformation!
Hugs,
Suzan

It looks amazing! The painted areas make the wood pop even more!

I think you have captured the best of both worlds - you did paint some of it to update and you didn't paint that beautiful, is it Tiger Maple? and that makes purists (like me most of the time) feel better! :)

I think you did a fantastic job. The mix of white with the wood is stunning. I would love it if you would share this over at my link party that is going on.
