French Provincial Tall Boy Dresser

So some of you know that I share a space at Carver Junk Company with Kirsten from White Butterfly Furniture. I am so lucky to have become partners with her! 

When I came across this set at Goodwill, I knew I couldn't haul both home without making 2 I called up Kirsten, she met me there and we split the set.

Here is the lowboy...she kept this one and since I forgot to take a before of my taller dresser, I stole her picture ;)

A few weeks ago, Cassie over at Primitive and Proper did a gorgeous gray wash dresser that I haven't been able to get out of my head. To die for (click the above link to see it!). But aside from the drawers, the original finish was pretty good and I wasn't sure that a gray wash would hold. 

So I sanded down the drawers and tried the gray wash. It's not as good as Cassie's, but I do love the way it turned out!

This one will be for sale at Carver Junk Company in November! Be sure to check out White Butterfly Furniture, say hi, and see what she does with the matching dresser!
