Beautiful Gray Bassett Dresser

This beautiful 9 drawer Bassett dresser & mirror is so perfect for a bedroom or a buffett table. It really was in pretty good shape already, but I love to make things personal, and different from what you'll find in a regular furniture store. So I pulled out my new favorite Oops paint from big blue--a soft gray color. Then I gave it a light distressing which let the dark stain show through.
 Talk about the "it" factor!
Measures 66" long, 18" deep, 32" to top of dresser, 75" to top of mirror.

  1. Feeling you here. I bought a great 9-drawer dresser at a thrift store for $58 years back! It has dovetail joints, old patina heavy brass pulls, three drawers on each side of center doors that open to three more drawers and WOOD(wow). Of course, it had the funky '70's "splattered oak" finish. I antiqued it by ragging it with antique white paint mixed with a bit of yellow. Then I dry-brushed a walnut stain over that and removed the excess. Through moves the paint has worn in places, which only adds to it's charm. It looks so "old world". I'm using it as an entertainment console with a huge armoire on top.

  2. Do you have any idea what year this dresser was made, or...know any other details about it - beside that it's Bassett?

    I let one of these guys pass me by on CL and don't want to miss another one...and I've been googling 9 drawer dressers for days trying to find a photo of what I'm looking Took me this long to finally find exactly what it is.
