Warm Wood Grain

The wood grain is what made this piece stand out to me and it is what makes it a showstopper as a finished piece. I’m so thankful to have gotten an order for it that includes keeping the grain as a feature rather than painting it. This warm wood grain two-toned piece will become a bathroom vanity in a new bath remodel.

One of my favorite staging techniques is using dramatic artwork to set the feel of a piece, and this canvas definitely does just that! With some towels and a wash pitcher of flowers, this warm wood grain dresser is bathroom ready!

    Absolutely stunning! I refinished a dresser to make into a vanity in my bathroom too, but I wish I had seen this before I did. :/
