{Antique Waterfall Dresser}

First, I need to apologize for not posting anything for 9 days!  Summer is crazy busy!  But..... 

We're in the process right now of doing this....I'm so excited, it's been a long time commin!!  I've HATED our front yard FOREVER!  I finally convinced the hubs to replace it.  I can't wait for the sod that's comming today!!!  If you look closely, my daughter is holding our new doggy, Boo.  One more reason summer has been crazy ;)

But I did manage to finish a dresser, whew!  As you know I am a sucker for waterfall anything!  So I HAD to get this.  I painted it Yarmouth Blue from Benjamin Moore and distressed it a bit.  I then added a glaze in the cracks and corners to 'dirty' it up a bit. 

I also added a harlequin pattern paper to line the drawers.  It just gives a bit more character and hopefully makes it sell a little quicker ;)

The knobs were gold and not my fav, so I painted them an off white color and added a bit of glaze to distress them.

I love the bottom on this one, haha....I'm not sure if that sounds good.  Her cute little curved detail adds just the right amount of charm.


  1. love that color! it is beautiful on that dresser!

  2. I love it!!! So cute!! I saw one of these for sale on CL and now I really want to buy it! Your dresser is gorgeous!!

  3. What a lovely color! Love the contrast of the off-white pulls.

  4. I love this one! I never was a fan of waterfall until I saw your pieces and realized how awesome they could be!

  5. OOoooo...I love this one! Gorgeous color and glazing!

  6. Another knockout piece! I love the paper in the drawers it adds some pizazz!

    Hugs, Cheryl

  9. It looks fantastic! It's such a soft, pretty blue. I think it will sell really fast. The black and white paper in the drawer looks really cute, too.

    I really wish my husband would let me paint our waterfall bedroom set! He inherited it, and so he gets the final say. And he likes the blond wood. :0/

  10. You pulled this dresser off to perfection! I love the color, glazing and the drawer interiors!!

  11. The inside of the dresser is so cute...what a great detail! Good luck on the front yard, I love projects like that because they are so worthwhile when they are done!
