Gadora fell in love with this dresser and one nightstand early this summer. I immediately loved the clean facade, devoid of fussy handles. The carved wooden frame around the dresser becomes its drawer pulls.
The perfect height, I found myself petting along the lines of the dresser as I removed each shiny layer from years of wear. I would apply the Methyl Ethyl, removing it carefully, belt sand their surfaces (with a lil help from Dad) and hand sand them too.
Gadora shuffled the two about the garage, away from other more-pressing projects, and finally applied the top coat of Oak-enhancing stain. It would be nine months before I would have the pair complete.
The vertical dresser holds surprises: a shallow top drawer, a deeply divided second drawer and a pristine concealed bottom-drawer cedar chest.

The final finish is deep matte and oak in color. I envision the two sitting in an eclectic-modern and sparsely decorated space. The dresser would be paired with a round mirror, free from frame. Like an exclamation point, of sorts, resting just above on the wall. The one nightstand would be at arms reach from the bed.

* Gadora has yet to discover their maker. Neither the dresser nor the one nightstand have a name between them.
