I absolutely love this one. Everything about it. Love. Love love love.
Did I mention I love it? ;-)
It's just so sweet. And so red. And so farmhouse-y. In a really good way.
I have been dying to try out Miss Mustard Seed's Tricycle Red milk paint ever since I saw it on a gorgeous old empire chest on Pinterest. I even bought an empire chest to paint this color, but I had a client purchase it as a custom piece before I got started, and that one ended up blue. No prob, it was gorgeous in blue… but…. that tricycle red milk paint was still calling my name. When I saw this antique farmhouse dresser listed for sale, I KNEW it was the one meant to be red. And it is totally a match made in heaven.
This is such a southern piece. Full of southern charm and sophistication. I love the legs and the porcelain knobs and the color and the whole gorgeous thing. It just works.
I'll try to stop swooning for a second to give you the details. :-) This beauty is solid wood, with five dovetailed drawers that work perfectly. I've painted it in MMS tricycle red with a distressed finish and clear wax, and I've given it lovely porcelain knobs to complete the look. Measurements are 54 1/2'' long x 34 1/2'' tall x 25'' deep, and it's priced at $520 (SOLD).
Do you have a room that needs this awesome pop of color? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to make it yours! Be quick too, please…. because I'm contemplating putting this sweetie in my foyer. :-)
