A couple of weeks ago this gorgeous Dixie Serpentine Dresser was finished in an Ombre Stained Finish. The body was painted white so that there was contrast between the stains and paint. I stripped the top and with some help the drawers were stripped as well. It left a nice blank canvas for my imagination to take over! I love trends. BUT, they have to be classic enough to be enjoyed for along time. I thought this was trendy and at the same time very classic! This piece will allow the owner to change the decor a million times and will fit in every time!
I have had a few people ask what stains I used and wanted to share the stain colors I used. I used four different stains and made sure to use a conditioner prior to each application.
|Local Lowes store had all of the four stains available.|
I liked all four stains including the wheat and driftwood! Wheat was so rich and appeared as it was made for the original piece. And the driftwood was very subtle that I hope to use it again very soon! It was a lot of fun making over this piece.
|The shape of the dresser is called "Serpentine" It really adds a lot of character.|
Curves add a lot of value to the piece and this is the reason its difficult to find or even buy. The craftsmanship is unbelievable. It takes days to get a drawer to bow in any direction.
|The stained top did add to the richness of the piece.|
|The white painted body allows the dresser to feel at home in any setting.|
|It was a very short stay until it left to a loving home.|
