A Vintage Desk and Antique Dresser in Pale Lilac
These two pieces did not by any means start life together. The dresser is an antique mahogany piece from the 1920s or 30s. The desk is a vintage maple piece made about forty years later. I got the dresser at the flea market last weekend, and the desk off the side of the road. I refinished both pieces together to match for a client's daughter's bedroom in their new beautiful home. The color is actually Benjamin Moore's Purple Easter Egg, but I hate that name for this color, so we're calling it pale lilac. To give the pieces a fresh bright look I whitewashed the tops before sealing them, and recolored antique oval stamped brass pulls with white as well.
