Yard Sale Find Flipped to a Colonial Antebellum Home Inspired Dresser

Welcome everyone to my Colonial Antebellum inspired Dresser Flip. It began with this $20 dresser yard sale find. This 10 drawer find I thought was in fairly good condition aside from some deep scratches on the top that needed to be sanded out or filled. They were even kind enough to deliver it.

Once I got it home and out of their grass...  I could see the work I had in store for me. The above image shows how much cosmetic work was needed to be done to the side of the footings and moldings. Most of it I was able salvage after removing 6 nails and 4 screws, all of them were driven in from the outside of the piece and were visible. The molding was in 3 pieces in the front and missing the back foot.

Repairs were made and she was brought back to life... Possibly even a grander life then she had before with the addition of the shutters to her mirror and new hardware. This dresser was inspired by the Colonial Antebellum architecture found frequently here in the south. I am in love with all the history around here that comes with being on the east coast.

I will admit I felt like this project was never going to end. Rebuilding, repairs, patching and sanding. It so far was the largest rehab I have done. Her Body is finished with Alamo White antiqued with Black ReVax, sealed with Sheer Vax.

Her top is Licorice (black) with Black Revax as a sealer.

Here is one full look at the before and after of what Shabby Paints can do for any piece of furniture! If you love it please make sure to take a second to comment below or Pin it to your favorite furniture board on Pinterest.

This beauty was sold in 4.5 hrs after I walked out of the store I set her up in. She is a stunning piece and I am sure going to be well admired once again.
