Natural all the way.

I've been wanting to do a completely natural dresser for a while now. And I chose this one hoping that the design on the dresser was actually in the wood. The wood was heavy enough that it could have been oak, but you never truly know till you strip it down right? 

Well I was wrong..Sometimes I want things so much I don't want to believe it might not turn out to be what I had hoped for. 
And sometimes I have to give up my wants for something equally as beautiful. 
This is one of those times. 
 I did my magic. Removed the pulls and treated them with a flat black as I think that always looks great against an antique piece.

 The wood came up beautifully!

 Someone decided to remove the lock though. I can never figure that one out. Just take away the key if you don't want it locked. I didn't fill it in, just in case someone came across a lock for it.

My "natural" instinct has been appeased. I'm happy, and ready for paint

  1. Found you through Miss Mustard Seed. It's beautiful in raw wood. I would leave it as is. I agree with you, it definitely looked like real tiger oak, could have fooled me too!
