I bought this beautiful Eastlake antique dresser quite a while ago.  It's from the late 1800's and had awesome pin and cove joints in the drawers, a rare find!  It needed some minor repairs but nothing too bad.  When I was asked to create a piece for a military auction,  I decided this was the piece to use, it needed a home!  And... I just love a deep coral color so I hand mixed just the right hue, love it!  It's a lot of fun to create a custom color.  Fall is on my  mind lately and those deep lush colors!
