This highboy dresser was in pretty bad condition. The old finish was dingy, stained and in desperate need of a makeover. The dresser is for a little boys nursery, so we chose brown, a nice masculine color. We sanded this dresser like crazy before painting it with a few coats of brown paint. We wanted some wood to show through, so after painting it we distressed it a bit. We left the hardware as it was because we liked the contrast it created.

Since we know little boys like to touch, hit, and climb on things we finished it with a coat of paste wax to protect the finish. It should be a piece that he can enjoy for many years to come.

Vintage furniture is a great choice for children’s rooms. Unlike a lot of the stuff you can buy these days it is constructed of solid hardwood. A good piece of furniture, like this highboy dresser, has dovetail joints and wood drawer glides. It’s sturdy and durable and you can find great deals at places like thrift stores, estate sales, and flea markets. Then paint it yourself, or bring it to us! We’d be happy to do the dirty work for you. Our labor charges for a dresser like this start at $177.
