The Roosevelt Dresser

I have a piece of furniture that I refinished years ago that sits in my living room and makes me smile every day I walk through the door. There's a story behind this piece that contains some wonderful life lessons for me. One of the reasons that I was drawn to it were her legs. She had six of them.. something you don't come across very often. My husband has tried to convince me to sell her on several occasions, but I'm still in love with her, so in the living room she stands.

I found another six legged friend that I'm excited to share. It's lovely in its simplicity, straight lines and detailed trim. Once updated, Mrs. Roosevelt would look lovely in a bedroom, in a dining room or fabulous converted into a vanity in a bathroom.


Her before wasn't too horrendous, but the color of the wood wasn't outdated and she had some wear on her top and edges. Like my piece in my living room, I decided to refinish her in Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan in Old White and Clear Wax. Her original vintage handles were updated in black. I wish I had room for two six legged friends at my house. ;)

Here she is in all her glory...
