Modern Knechtel Dresser 

As soon as I saw this solid wood Knechtel bedroom suite I knew I wanted to buy it. Happily Dan could see the "good bones" too.  I had just brought a full dining room set (table, chairs, buffet & china cabinet) home the day before! 

This is a quality piece of furniture that just needed some attention. I was sure the right colours would accentuate and modernize the clean lines of its design.

Watermarks to sand away
Varnish is worn off and missing in areas



I could see this as dark grey with
black feet
I like the original hardware, but want
to update the look

      
Dan had to drill new holes for the handles
What a difference new hardware can make
Just like new jewelry!!
