Mid-century Dresser (SOLD)

I will admit I'm excited about this one. :-)  Mid-century pieces seem to be all the rage right now - and I can definitely see why.  The modern yet vintage feel, the sleek lines, the great hardware, the awesome legs.... there's nothing to dislike about this style! I felt like this piece could pull off a fabulous color, and I'm always looking for an excuse to use Antibes Green.... so I'm thrilled with the way this guy turned out. 
This piece is solid wood and very sturdy, and is made by Johnson/Carper Furniture out of Roanoke VA. I did a little research on the furniture company, and it seems that they were one of the leading manufacturers of mid-century pieces back in the day. This is definitely a vintage piece, and it's in excellent condition.  All six drawers are dovetailed and work well, and I love the way they're curved inwards. So cool.

The hardware on this one is pretty awesome too.

Isn't the shape of the legs and bottom so neat? Mid-century all the way. :-)

I've painted it a custom mix of Antibes Green and Graphite, and given it a lightly distressed finish. It's also coated with clear wax for protection. Measurements are 54'' long x 30 1/2'' tall x 18'' deep and it's priced at $350 (SOLD).
