Empire Gray And Java Dresser

By Kim, Owner at Kim G. Designs in Eden Prairie, MN.

I wanted to keep this Empire Highboy dresser clean and classy.  I opted to paint the base in Driftwood gray and stained the drawers in beautiful Java Gel Stain.  The grain came out gorgeous.  I painted the top two drawers the same as the base for a different look.  The hardware was updated as well.  I love the white knobs with a black design added.  Pairs perfectly with the dresser.
