An Antique Oak Dresser in Blue

I picked this dresser up last weekend at the Mansfield Fleamarket. It was a beautiful morning and there were treasures a plenty. I scored this piece, and a coordinating oak dresser near the very end of the field, after I'd already purchased a fair bit of furniture, but I couldn't pass it up!
     The matching low dresser's drawers were shot, so I'll be turning it into a bookshelf or island. But this dandy was in fine condition. I painted the case in a bright blue almost the shade of my cottage, and refinished the top to play up the stunning solid oak. I used salvaged vintage brass pulls, recolored in a bright silver for a fun twist on a classic look. It's all set for a new home!
