My Alley Crawling Find!
Antique Dresser ready for the landfill has a new purpose!
Hubby gutted it out and added more support boards.
I gave it a good sanding!
Gave it a paint job!
My color choice is a Greyish Fig!
Time to dress it up with this FAB vintage BOLD upholstery fabric I found at a thriftstore. 
Added a crystal knob for the drawer and a few crystal embellishments to touch up the back.  
I also trimmed the top with chipped moulding I salvaged from a 1892 home.
