Little Charcoal Dresser

Hey fans, I know you’re out there, just waiting for me to post the finished Little Charcoal Dresser. Here she is in all her glory! I say that loosely because she didn’t turn out exactly as I had planned, but then, what does in this life? I was trying for a smooth, modern look, but ended up with a little more broken-in, vintage look. I’m OK with that because I think she’s charming and I hope you do to!

Finally FINISHED!!!

I’m slowly making progress on the little charcoal dresser. Still have to work on the drawers and top, but I’m getting close!

Back and sides have 2 coats of Mudpaint but the front still needs sanding and one more coat. Then it’s time for the topcoat to seal everything in.


After much searching I found this beautiful “painted arrows” paper to line the drawers at a local gift shop here in Bend.

One more “before” photo to share with you . . . this is what the drawers look like now . . . but not for long!

Drawers before . . . original stain "drips" add character and won't be painted over!

STAY TUNED . . . tomorrow is BAKING DAY!!! I’m really excited to use a locally made product and add my baking to it to create something refreshing and delicious!

first post…here we go!

This is my first painted furniture project for juniper & pine, which is my new business name, inspired by my favorite smells of Bend! I found this cute little dresser on craigslist and I’ve been sanding and painting for a week or so now. It’s getting a couple of coats of Mudpaint (more on this new paint company in a future post) in Charcoal, some teal faceted pulls and hopefully, a new owner who will appreciate all my efforts to save and make functional this handmade piece of furniture.
