Vintage Steel Dresser

Strip vintage finds to reveal modern and polished pieces.

"Not all vintage or industrial pieces are rusty or rustic—there is a booming business in repurposing industrial furniture from the 1930s," says Fiona Richards, the Nelson, B.C. artist behind the inspiring Cafe Cartolina blog and owner of Cartolina Cards. "This wonderful piece is a great example of what happens when you strip a painted steel dresser down to its raw material and clear coat it for an almost mirrored finish."
