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!!!
