Seen: Before and After /March 25, 2014 by Lynnea Schwieters Here at LJID we love the challenge of recreating vintage pieces. We took this dresser from the trenches and gave it new life. What do you think? The clean lines caught my eye. The wood finish was a little beachy but the brass hardware did not compliment the light color. Do you recognize it? We gave it new life with a dusty blue paint, modernized the base, and painted the hardware black to highlight it's mid century style.
