My friend found this wonderfully made French dresser and asked me to paint it to compliment another French styled chest she had purchased. How does she get so lucky to find these wonderful pieces?!!
She pointed out the furniture maker…Garrison Furniture from right here in Fort Smith, AR. I was told that at one time, Fort Smith was the furniture production capital in the 40’s-late 60’s. The chest is heavy and well crafted with dove-tail joints and wood sliders.
I forgot to take a before photo, but you can tell from the cabinet that it was a lighter finish in the honey maple family. On with the black paint for an under coat!
