White Wash Highboy ~ My new LOVE

I am now in LOVE with white washing.  That's for today at least, as my friend Dina quoted to me last week, "any way the wind blows" , in reference to my likes or things I get obsessed with.  It changes on a day to day basis sometimes:).  During the last few months of researching and reading endless blogs, I finally tackled something new and I'm so happy with the end result!  

I had no idea what I was going to do with this piece when I first got it.  Due to the large size and it's unique character, I knew it demanded something special but I wasn't sure where to go with it.  But finally, I had a vision and went with it!


This piece measures 22"d x 44"h x 39.5" w.  It has 5 very LARGE drawers for lots of storage room.  It is STURDY and solid wood.  If I had to name this dresser, I would call it "BIG BOY HIGHBOY", referring to its large size.  It's a one of a kind piece!

This piece was sanded down, white washed, dry brushed and an ebony stain was used on the top.  Then it was slightly distressed and finished with some Minwax furniture paste for protection.  I also added some new oil-rubbed bronze hardware.  It's gorgeous and it's looking for a new home!  Before, I change my mind and decide to keep it.....   $475
