MCM Dressers, My New Obsession

Well I think it's safe to say I took the Summer off from Blogging.  My last post was two days into Summer Vacation & now here it is Labor Day already.  I have been busy to say the least. Hope you all had a wonderful Summer.

I was looking through some pictures of my work & noticed how many Mid Century Modern Dressers I've painted. They seem to be my new Obsession.  I love the clean lines. 

This is the dresser that started this new Obsession of mine. It was a roadside treasure that turned out to be one of my favorite dressers I've ever done.

Sometimes the MCM style is straight lines with curvy drawers. 

This was a custom job.  I Love how the French Post card graphic pops on the top of the dresser.

Recently I have been finding these amazing long dressers that work perfectly as entertainment centers. People want them for their large Flat Screen TV's.

This set I painted the same & they sold together.

This is the set I have now.

I love the paint/wood combination.  I am waiting for the perfect set to come along for myself.  I would love a set of this MCM style in my own home. 

Do you like the Mid Century Modern Style?  Would you paint them or leave them original?

Thank you for stopping by, hopefully I'll be able to slow down some & post more often before the snow flies.  Check me out on Facebook to see what I'm working on.  Have a great day!  Dee


  1. I'd paint them. I can see this style in funky modern homes with bright, bold colors. I'd probably paint them grass green with gold accents, or nautical blue with white accents, bright red with yellow accents etc.

  2. I know the feeling, Dee! You just can’t help yourself from giving those dressers a facelift, especially when you had satisfying results on your first try. Anyway, what I really like about Mid Century dressers is that they all have a basic layout that can go with any kind of design.
