Duncan Phfyfe Dresser: Paying My Sitter with Furniture

This style of furniture has my heart. The pulls, the curves...swoon!

I had been looking for a day or two for a solid, cute and functional dresser that could be used for a TV stand. My awesome sitter that comes one morning a week was looking for one and we made a deal that I could pay her by painting stuff! Win-win!

Before:



After paint and cherry stain:











I'm very happy with how this turned out and can't wait to see it in it's new home!

A few years ago I bought a very tired sideboard. I painted it Old Village Black with a natural cherry top. Found some really cool pulls at my local hardware store. Amazing what a little sanding and paint/stain will do for a tired piece of furniture.
