Diagonal Striped Dresser

By The Charming Home

Winning Category

This 1960's Harmony House dresser was in need of a makeover. We stripped and restained the drawers using a dark walnut stain and General Finishes Gel Topcoat so the natural beauty of the wood grain could shine through. Then, we helped her to stand out from the crowd of stained drawer fronts and white bodies with bold Persimmon, Martha Stewart Gold and Snow White diagonal stripes.  Tying the look together, we updated the bow pulls and the legs with Martha Stewart Gold and topcoated the entire piece in a satin finish. Now she is a piece of art with purpose!
