This piece has been in the works for a while. We’ve had the dresser for a few months and I’ve been marinating on this idea for quite some time. We both love the NY subway art that is every where these days – and it’s especially close to our hearts because we both lived in NYC – at the same time, worked 3 blocks from each other, attended a few parties at the same time – but never met until we both moved back to Houston (within a month from each other). But that’s another story.
I came up with this idea based on the NY Subway art – it’s always something that we’ve wanted to have here in the house but it’s a matter of finding the right piece for the right place. So when this dresser came through – I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it.
This dresser before wasn’t bad – solid oak with a empire style front – sturdy but blah. So I treated it to a dark grey paint, old white and some distressing. The top was stripped and stained – and the knobs to match. (How to guide to come soon) And now we have:
This piece is for sale – not matter how I hate to let it go – if you are interested, just contact us – $325 – Measurements: 49″ tall, 18″ deep & 33″ wide
