Thomasville Dresser/Buffet

This is one of the few free pieces I have come across.  I know some of you guys are lucky & find free furniture all over the place but not here.  If something free is posted on CL, it is gone with 15 minutes.  And if it is in the trash, it is because it really is trash.  I guess it was my lucky day to find this free piece & it is Thomasville!  It really was in good shape, drawers worked well, no major scratches or chips.  Legs were perfect, it just need some updating.

I added a damask stencil on the door with Venetian Plaster & finished it with gold Rub n Buff.

It was missing one pull so I just removed them from the top drawers & replaced them with the biggest glass knobs I could find.

Top is Modern Masters Pale Gold.

I added a little surprise just inside the doors.

And another surprise inside the drawers.  

Now available at City Antiques in Roswell.
