2 Tone Tiger Wood Antique Dresser

I bought this dresser and another one to refinish and sell. If you follow me on Facebook you might have seen the photo of the befores already!


 
When I saw this, I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with it. Then I decided that it would be a sin to paint all of that gorgeous tiger wood. Yet, it still needed a little bit modernizing. :)


Here's the before (and his brother in the background!):

I love how is still has an antique feel to it. All he needed was a slight restoration of the wood and a bit of white accent paint! The dovetailed joints and keyholes (sadly I don't have the key) are swoon worthy!


The mirror is attached, but can be unscrewed for transport. The base is not (easily at least - I couldn't get it off) removable. The angle of the mirror is also adjustable!


I love how you can see that gorgeous wood from every angle!!! He'd be perfect as a nightstand, dresser, or entry table!


This guy is awaiting a new home! If you're local and interested you can see him  in my shop, along with other awesome items awaiting a home!!!

  1. fun fun fun! I am doing something similar with a birds eye maple dresser... except I am painting the trim/frame in a dark navy! I love updating wood pieces with some paint, but also leaving some natural wood!

  2. At the same time, the price of pure solid wood furniture is too much higher than the artificial solid wood furniture and solid wood and artificial board combined furniture.
