Little Red Dresser

I’m writing this post from our hotel room as we’re getting a little R&R in Northern Michigan.  Since we’ll be travelling through Traverse City on our annual trip around the Leelanau Peninsula, it only made sense that I feature the little red dresser I finished just before we left.

I mixed up a combination of Traverse City Cherry and Kissimmee Orange to create this color then finished it in clear. then went back over it and aged it with dark aging wax.
While doing the initial cleaning, I discovered a little bonus.  The bottom drawer is lined in cedar.  I thought that was pretty cool.
Ugh!  The color looks so yellow in these photos, similar to how pictures turn out in a gym.  I don’t know if it’s a reflection off the hardwood floors or the fluorescent lights, but this dresser is much prettier in person than it appears in these photos.
I’m thrilled with the color in real life and will definitely be doing other pieces in this combo, and soon!  This close up is a better representation of color.

And if I use a flash in the store, I get this ~ so I guess you can get an idea of how it would look at night, but the top doesn’t look orange like it appears here and the paint has nice dimension like the close up shows.  The flash flattens it all out.  Ok, I get it… I wont take pictures in the store anymore, what can I say?  I was in a hurry to get on vacation 😀

We dropped her off just before we headed north.

If interested, you’ll find her sitting pretty in our Shizzle Design space at Not So Shabby in downtown Zeeland.  update, sold.
