This dresser was a Craigslist find. It generally was in pretty good shape, but we already had a design in mind when we purchased it. The dresser had a sold cherry top and cherry drawers so there was a lot of intricacy to the wood grain. Josh's dad has done a lot of projects that feature a black painted body with a stained top and drawers. We decided to steal one from his playbook, and we are glad that we did.

Grey Empire Style Dresser
This was a yard sale find in Stokesdale, NC. We love to go to yard sales because you truly never know what you will come across. When we pulled up to this particular yard sale we immediately spotted this dresser in the front yard. When it comes to antiques, like this dresser, you never know if the owners are going to be proud and ask an unreasonable price for it, or if they will be willing to part ways with the piece for a decent price. Luckily for us, the latter ended up being the case.
