Master Bedroom “Make Under” – New Dresser

So remember the last update on our bedroom “make-under” here. & here? Well, I promise you there hasn’t been anything much to update on since then. I did get some new bedding & pillows, but I will post more on that later. One pretty exciting update is that I finally bought the dresser I had my eye on for over a year at a local antique shop. I never had space for it in our home so I refrained from buying it, but recently I sold the green dresser from our old master bedroom {here} so it was all mine. I think I got it for a steal { $100} Vintage, has all it’s wheels, perfect hardware, the drawers slide in & out nicely, but it still needs a little surface work & a little tlc. Not bad! This is the dresser today before I have done any work to it. What do you think?

The dresser is so petit & I was a little worried about the small scale in our bedroom, but I love how cute & feminine this piece is. I’m thinking about maybe adding  a few painting details to it? Once I clean it up I will make the call from there. I just love this little dresser so much. O, & there’s buck! Remember him from our front guest bedroom {here} He has a new home in our master bedroom now. I kind of love him too.


Mr. LMB & I love this little antique shop in our town & we find the best treasures, like this dresser, at this little store. This is a photo I posted on Instagram as we were going up the stairs to pick up our little dresser. Can you see the fear in my eyes wondering how we were going to carry it down two flights of stairs? haha look harder ;)  What do you think of the new dresser? I’m excited to clean it up & see how much more I love it then. Leave a comment below or be sure to chat with me on facebook & Instagram! xx


  1. That dresser is adorable! Love it even just as is. Looks great!

    Love it! It is darling. $100???? Wow, great price. I love a great deal. My husband and I go “Junkin” as one of our things to do together.

  3. It is so, so cute! I love great deals like that.

  4. I really like the little gold Owl – I have the same one on my mantel.

  5. It’s beautiful! :) I love that antique wood finish ( as opposed to the orange-y yellow-y type so popular in the 70′s, 80′s, and 90′s) It looks gorgeous just the way it is – but I’m certain whatever you do will look great1

    • I agree Brandi! Not a fan of that either in our house :/ Yah, I’m thinking that I need to keep the majority wood {cleaned up I think it will look great!} Maybe like the side panels painted? I need some inspiration! Thanks for your sweet comment & encouragement :) xx

  6. I love it!! It is so vintage and pretty. ❤️ Where did you get your beautiful white curtains? They are so pretty too.

    • omg those are new too! I forgot to mention that. They are from H&M! I got them on cyber monday for a great deal! I will update on all the other details soon.. I hope you are having a great day :) xx

    The new little dresser reminds me of you. It is small and feminine, like you said, and full of possibilities but perfect just the way it is!

    Which antique store? Im thinking of going to Black Swan tomorrow. (: There’s one im dying to go to in Wilmington.

  9. I read you got new bedding. I loved you other bedding when you did your matter bedroom tour. And searched for it with no luck. If you ever wanna sell it, let me know :)) and love the antique dresser!!

  10. That dresser is darling! And I have a deer head exactly like that one!

  11. Liz Marie…I LOVE that dresser. Had to click over from MMS to see some more of it and wasn’t at all surprised it was yours! Love the deer head and greenery and well,…EVERYTHING! Some painted detail might be nice though if it was mine I would tint some danish oil with walnut stain and lightly coat the whole thing.

  12. That dresser is gorgeous and will look pretty in any color! And Buck is so handsome!

  13. I cant wait to see some added painted details, its a great find! Buck looks mighty fine hanging in his new home!
