A New Frenchie in Black and Gold!

I came across this vintage Thomasville dresser and nightstand. Now, it wasn't horrible, just 
a bit dated. Everyone always does white and gray or combos of said colors. I wanted to try
something different. 
                           I went with black, a very soft, light gray and gold. Love it how it finished up!

The tops on these are that laminate type of paint. I really don't know what it's called. 
 I wanted to see what the wood top was like,

Whistlin' Dixie with my new MCM!!

I am on a roll with these mid century modern beauties! They are so much fun to re-do!!
This is the first Dixie-made one that I've come across.  Although, this isn't the first one 
to be in such rough shape!  Have a looksie,,,,

   What in the world do people do to the tops of their furniture??! I mean, come on! 
Do they sharpen their ice skates on them??

Woohoo,,She cleans up rather nicely!! Gotta love wood. It's so forgiving! 
Walnut is gorgeous when it's refinished!!
Can you believe the difference in the top??? Some sanding, and some nice dark stain,,,,,,

Ok.....Notice the bottom left. There was a big chunk missing. I knew I would have to paint this
edging but I was hoping that I could fill it in with my wood epoxy without it being too noticeable.
