I shared the "before" of this Dixie campaign dresser here....
A very desirable piece that I knew needed the perfect makeover.
I spent hours cleaning the brass hardware. One of the little doodad brackets was missing so I had to order two on Etsy....they didn't match the original hardware exactly but as my Daddy use to say "You'll never notice it on a passing train!"
A few minor repairs but all in all, it was in outstanding condition for a 50+ year old piece!
A KTSP treatment...kilz, sand, tack cloth and a high gloss oil based paint!
This was a tough one to let go! I took it to 410 Vintage at around 3:00 Tuesday afternoon and they texted me at 5:00 that it was sold....I'm so glad someone else loved it as much as I did!
These vintage pieces can be brought back to life with a little elbow grease...if you can find one, don't let the grungy old finish and dingy hardware deter you! You won't be disappointed!
