Distressed Dresser


This is one of the pieces that we found at the same estate sale where my office storage buffet came from. You can see why we ran after this one – throwing elbows and everything.

In fact, this piece was sold before I even finished repairing it. The top was in pretty bad shape, so I repaired the veneer and filled in the holes. It came out great and now this curvy dresser has a new home.

Don’t forget to check out those feet!

This piece has been sold and is not available.

  1. May I ask how you fixed the veneer? This is my most hated ‘thing’ about older pieces. I usually end up chipping all the old veneer off and sanding it really well and then painting. Thanks!

      Amy –
      The veneer on this one was already coming up in a few places, so I wet it down a bit, covered it with a towel and ironed it to release anything that was also still loose. Then I glued the loose pieces back down and clamped them together with a large flat weight. Then for the holes – I filled those with wood filler – sanded lightly and then painted the entire thing.
