Dressers we took from brown and/or damaged to a new life. The first one had venear damage and water stains. Now very cool with a Gothic paint job, as BJ calls that paint style. #3 had broken drawers. We put in a shelf and added some wood trim we had from some else and did a French Country paint job. #4 The bottom was pretty nice oak but very low for any interest. The back is part of an old rope bed we found rotting behind a barn. The lion paw braces are legs left from a table. #5 is another low oak dresser that is now a potting bench or display peice. The back was a mirror frame off an old dresser we put beadboard and shelf.
