farmhouse deco dresser

I found this large solid wood five-drawer dresser and refinished it to go with the Farmhouse Paneled Bed Frame (previous post) for little Markus's bedroom.  The dresser was missing it's back so I purchased a half sheet of 1/8" Mahogany plywood and secured it to the back using finishing nails.  I switched out the old pulls for new round black metal knobs.  The unique details on the base of this sturdy dresser lend a slight Art Deco feel to it.  

Both pieces should allow for many years of use as their size and style are suitable for grown ups but can be made fun for a toddler or young child through colourful bedding and playful decorative decor.  



  1. This transformation is awesome, I may try to do this on my own dresser. Did you use a stain or paint to refinish this?

  2. Hello and thank you! I used black paint on this piece with a water-based varnish over top.
    Cheers :)
