Pin It

Dressed For A Man

Dress-er-ed-s. Plural. Two dressers.

 

Pretty sure a guy could place his prized threadz in either one of these. What do you think guys? Oh, that’s right, guys don’t read this. So, ladies, is this a manly set?

Sorry about the poor picture of the low boy. It’s been on the sales floor. Couldn’t get it out to get a good picture.

 

I think it has it all. Style, grit, and some vintage funk. I think you could use them in a family room too. Or an entry way? Or…or…one in the entry way (the one with that awesome mirror) and the tall boy in a joining room. Of course you could use them in a bedroom. I just didn’t want to tell you what to do. sheesh

 

Masculine or feminine, Annie Sloan did the job. Both pieces were done in Old White and Paris Gray. And both received clear and dark wax. I didn’t try to hide any imperfections on this thing. I let my brush fly, leaving brush marks everywhere. I love the detail that the wax brings out!

Those. Handles. Look at them! Classy, with a bit of an edge.

The original wasn’t’ bad. Okay, yes it was. But I’ve seen worse! That yellow is just drab. Give me a cup of warm milk and a nap to go with that color please.

 

But now. Fresh and new. Oh, and they’re sold. The lady that bought them, did so as a set. I hadn’t even started the second one yet. But she didn’t care. She just wanted it to match the low boy. One last view, from above. The wax is actually pretty even on the top. Honest.

Gonna finish this one up with a before and after.

Now, I know this is probably a unique look and style. I just can’t imagine this fitting inside of just anyone’s house. What about you. Could you rock these with your décor? Better yet, could they rock your décor?

I really like them! They have the vintage feel and I could def see them in a man's room or like you said, in an entry way with the other one complimenting it in another part of the house! LOVE Annie Sloan...makes everything look better! :)
