This waterfall dresser was made in the 1930's approximately, and was brought to Canada from Germany. It is made of solid wood - a mixture of maple and pine - no veneers, plywood or laminate.

The four drawers will comfortably hold your folded clothes, or bedlinen, or whatever you need to store in a beautiful dresser.

The strong colours look amazing in any setting, especially in a bedroom.

There is a matching waterfall dresser with a large mirror which will be available before Christmas.

The process:
Read more about the process.
The old yellowed finished was removed, and the wood sanded and restored. The drawers were carefully repaired, and any imperfections were filled and sanded.

The body of the dresser has been painted in Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash. Fusion Mineral Paint is a 100% acrylic, water-based paint. The “mineral” in Fusion Mineral Paint refers to the pigments used which are harvested from the earth. Using natural rather than synthetic pigments allows for greater depth in colour and better durability to UV light and time.

The drawer fronts were stained using General Finishes Gel Stain in Java, which is a dark, lustrous colour and then given a light sand.

The drawer fronts and the body of the dresser were given two coats of Dixie Belle's Easy Peasy Wax finish, and then wet sanded to achieve a silky smooth finish.

The original drawer hardware was given a very deep clean, sprayed using Rustoleum's Flat Black, and finished with 3 sprays of satin clear coat.

The inside of the drawers were sanded and cleaned, then saturated with Dixie Belle's Big Mama's Butta, which rehydrated the wood, giving it a deep luster, a smooth finish and a slight orange scent.

To finish the dresser perfectly, RoomMates peel and stick wallpaper in the design Tropical Flowers.
