1920s dresser




1920's dresser 2This dresser wasn’t looking so good, peeling veneer at the edges of the drawers, and a bit on the top as well. I knew I wanted to keep the beauty of the wood intact as much as possible. This piece not only has beautiful lines but also vintage Bakelite hardware!   I decided to fill in the areas of veneer that were chipped by using Bondo.  I stripped and sanded the drawers, and painted the frame Carbon a Behr color in a matte finish. I restained the drawers in a English chestnut minwax stain. Waxed and done!

The before..
