This vintage chest of drawers was manufactured mid-century by Pacemaker. This is a design we find ourselves reusing because it has been so well-received by Blue Lamb fans. We hand-painted the body with two coats of Benjamin Moore Advance over primer. Then after we stripped, stained, and polyed the drawer fronts, we hand-painted the white stripes . We just love the contrast in finishes on this simple, clean lined piece. The colors we used are Kendall Charcoal and White Dove. This dresser measures: 36"W x 18"D x 41 1/2"H.
