Talk about a two-tone stunner! This vintage Dixie six drawer dresser is a solid mahogany beauty. The top of the dresser as well as the two top drawers have been refinished to reveal the natural gorgeous wood grain. The rest of the piece has been painted in a rich charcoal grey. There's light hand distressing done throughout the painted edges of the entire piece to tie it all together. The Hepplewhite drawer pulls were updated in an on trend copper and then an antiquing glaze was applied. Each of the six dove tail jointed drawers have been lined in a playful vintage bicycle specialty paper. 

The mirror was painted to match and then also gently distressed. Additionally, touches of copper gilding wax is applied to the raised areas.
