Dressers. Saturday , October 21st , 2017 - 12:49:33 PM
Second-hand dressers and sideboards can also be painted in any colour of your choice to match your kitchen or home interior, and make them even more unique to you. Once they have been painted you can distress them by sanding to make them really shabby chic in style. People often refer to French farmhouse style or English country cottage style dressers but there are many different styles of antique dressers out there, from many periods and many different areas of Europe. French-style shabby chic dressers tend to be very decorative and elaborate, whereas English country cottage dressers are plainer and often heavier in appearance. Whichever style you prefer the choice is endless, as there are very few antique dressers the same out there. Each one differs slightly due to being hand-made rather than mass-produced in the way that reproductions are.
Another style of handmade dressers that is still popular today is the Shaker style. Originating in the late 1700s, the Shaker style is revered for its clean lines, durable features and innovative joinery methods. Distinctive features include an arched apron and tapered legs, which looks graceful and unimposing. Originally minimal in embellishments, artisans today will play with the tradition by adding modern touches, like blending types of wood in the paneling. Contrasting natural woods, like maple and walnut, a craftsman can really highlight the beauty of the panel doors and drawers. Intentionally practical, these sideboard Shaker style dressers are perfect for storing dining room china, but the pieces of furniture are elegant enough on their own.
You have to choose your oak dresser depending on whether you want one with smaller and more drawers or one with fewer and bigger drawers. Of course, the larger the dresser, and the more drawers in the dresser, the more expensive it will be.With oak being a durable and heavy wood with beautiful grain, oak dressers are basically stronger and more durable than dressers made from other woods such as mahogany. It is better to get yourself an oak dresser if you have a large and active family which will be opening and closing the dresser frequently, as these dressers dont damage easily with so much wear and tear.When compared to pine furniture, unfinished oak furniture is second to it in terms of popularity amongst furniture buyers. This is because this unfinished oak dresser can easily be stained, and coated in a layer of clear urethane.
