French Dresser $450

Updated-sold 
I sold the dresser today & even though it went to one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met, I was sad to see it go!  Now there is a big empty space on my wall that reminds me it's gone.  Hopefully I will find another piece that I will love just as much.

I recently finished this gorgeous dresser.  Here are some before shots (with the drawers out) I almost didn't remember to take the before shots!


Top was completely sanded and re-stained a gorgeous dark walnut.  Paint is a perfect creamy white that I had colored matched from a Ballard's Designs shelf.  Glazed with dark walnut.  This is the first piece I have redone and not distressed.  The doors are 2" thick!  This dresser weighs a ton!  This is the longest dresser I have ever seen, it measures 81" long.
I originally purchased it for me but I think I need something smaller.  So I've decided to find it a good home.  Let me know if you are interested!



 I have now glazed the inside drawers & doors.  I just couldn't live with the whiteness of the color!
