Overhauled Long Drawer Dresser with Vintage Yardsticks and Original 1930s Coca-Cola Factory BlueprintsJune 17th, 2015 in member junk
I was dying to make another blueprint themed piece of furniture. My grandmother had this piece for a while and I always knew it would be perfect for this theme. I didn't dare tell her because, as grandmothers do, she would've had me take it home right then instead of continuing to enjoy it herself. She passed away at the first of the year and an estate sale is very soon so I decided to breathe new life into the piece of furniture.
I used original 1930s Coca-Cola factory blueprints on top along with some vintage yardsticks that I routed out a home for on top so there would be a completely flat surface on top. I ran some original old stock metal furniture trim around the top perimeter. The rest is some TLC in the paint and distressing department along with replacing the handles for a more streamlined appearance.
