I call this piece my Old World Dresser.
One side was missing a trim piece, so rather than try to mimic the original, my husband removed the piece that was left and fashioned two new, matching pieces of trim instead. His attention to detail continually impresses me…just look at that beveled edge.
The top of the dresser was laminate (why ever why, I just don’t know) and the edges were ripped off. We puzzled over what to do for quite awhile before opting to wrap the laminate with mdf trimwork. Although not as durable is a good solid piece of wood, this solution provided a beautiful tie-in with the other detailed lines of the piece, and it also gave me an architecturally interesting surface on which to paint.
But wait…there is more. A little rectangular detail was also missing from the left front leg…no worries if you have a talented, willing Fix-It man at your house.
An invaluable experience, really.
