Taking a classic MCM dresser with this brown boring stain and transforming it into something eye-catching, bold and unique was definitely fun for me! So much fun I wanted to keep the piece for myself.. lol. BUT I knew what was impossible ;( .. so I delivered it to be with one happy customer. She was using it as her cake baking storage which turned out perfectly! She told me only one time what she "thought" she wanted and couldn't really describe it..but I knew what she was talking about without even saying it. This is how this beautiful piece turned out, and I just LOVE the fork handles!! my fave!!

So a co-worker of mine, who was moving into a place of her own and getting a divorce, came across an old dresser set from her parents that had been in the basement hidden for 16 years. They were good quality and well made Lane furniture but had that awful brown 70's stain as did most of the furniture from back in the day (although it doesn't always look horrible). The pieces had these cut-out stars in them doors of the two pieces and outdated handles. She had asked if I thought I could revive them and give them new life and honestly, I hesitated but thought "nah, anything I do is and will be an improvement".. so with that being said, after she decided what her color scheme would be in her new home (she was so excited to finally be decorating) we talked about how we wanted it to look. She bought a bed set and I took the pillow case and decided to use that as my inspiration. Making a long story short.. and unfortunately without a 'before' picture (but you can use your imagination and picture it in an ugly brown stain) I was able to accomplish a renovated revived dresser that brought her to tears! After that reaction, all was right with the world... and I remembered why I loved doing this job for people.. take a peek! it turned out really chic and kitchy!
