Dresser like mine - Vintage Bassett "Versailles" French Provincial Dresser from the 1960s is heavy, large & made of solid maple. The 9 drawers (4 are hidden behind the double doors) have dove-tail joints & original pulls with a beautiful patina. It has been sanded, stained, primed, painted and waxed. Slightly distressed to give it the shabby chic effect. By Claudia Lardizabal ArtWorks (Austin, TX) ~ http://www.claudialardizabal.com/furniture-portfolio.html
If you're new to painting, I would HIGHLY recommend visiting All Things Thrifty and read her post Painting Furniture 101. This is where I started and I am sooo thankful for this post to set me in the right direction. Check out her piano transformation here! it is TO DIE FOR!
