The original hardware on this piece along with the amazing detailing sold me on purchasing this dresser. It is GORGEOUS! It's rare to find a piece with all of the hardware accounted for on this age of a piece. Even the harp mirror hardware was all there!
After cleaning it up I painted one coat of Country Chic Chalk Paint in Cobblestone and then heavily distressed the entire piece. I wanted to bring out the crocodile skin texture that you just can't recreate no matter how hard you try!
