Driftwood Dresser

I don't come across super duper bleached wood dressers often, so I was really charmed by this antique piece. It ended up sitting on my to-do list for over 6 months, which actually isn't as long as some that are yet to be worked on, but I was excited to get to it because I had a plan in mind right from the start.

A chalky cream paint, worn down in areas and rubbed into the wood in others, feels fresh, but not new.





To me, nothing feels more "beachy" than old pewter. I love that the shell pulls mimic the arch of the bottom feet.


I wanted the grain of the wood to peek through since it has a beautiful color and the wood is all cut on the diagonal.



I am always asked by clients "what is your favorite style?" as far as furniture, and while I love the romantic, airy feel of french provincial pieces, these chunkier, heavy pieces are actually where my heart is. I never get tired of these cottage, beachy guys.
