Sone found this vintage Basset dresser at a magical-sounding place called the Mid-Century Furniture Warehouse. It needed some TLC but she was up for the challenge.

From Sone:

The original veneer on the top and sides needed a little TLC, but it was the perfect size and the exact statement piece we were looking for. Once we got it home I knew immediately that it needed to be brightened up. However, I didn’t want to cover up all of the walnut, just mask the imperfections. We also loved the brass hardware and wanted to highlight it.

Armed with a wood chisel, medium weight sand paper and a gallon of semi-gloss white paint, I went to work. To my surprise, the chipped veneer peeled of really nicely and the other areas only needed light sanding. Two coats of white paint later, voilà.

Thank you Sone!
