Antique Sligh Dresser w/ Glass Knobs - SOLD

We salvaged this gorgeous chest of drawers from the attic of a 100 year old home in Jamaica Plain.  It was manufactured circa 1919 by the Sligh Furniture Co. in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  The new finish on this piece was inspired by a dresser that we refinished for a Blue Lamb client in January of 2015.  We hand-painted the body with Benjamin Moore Advance paint over BIN primer.  Then we stripped, stained, and polyed the top surface in an effort to feature the beautiful wood grain.  Finally for a touch of glamor, we replaced the original wooden knobs with new round glass knobs that we purchased from Rejuvenation.  All four drawers slide well.  They are solidly constructed with dovetail joints.  The chest rests on metal casters.  The mirror is in excellent condition.  Fully assembled, this piece measures: 44"W x 23"D x 71" H.  Without the mirror, the dresser measures 37"H.
