One of the most important things you need to do when looking for the perfect dresser is choose a dresser based on your specific type of bedroom. You need to make sure that the dresser you choose fits in with the overall décor of your bedroom. There are lots of really beautiful dressers available in different styles so it shouldnt be difficult to find one to fit in with your bedroom. Does your bedroom have more of a traditional feel? If so you should choose a dresser with a classic, traditional look. Does your bedroom have the elegant feel of a Victorian theme? Try a dresser with a romantic feel enhanced with beautiful attention to the detailed carvings.
So you have finally decided to get yourself a dresser - not only, but an oak dresser as well. This is really a good and wise decision, as investing in oak dressers, or any form of oak furniture, is an investment for a life. An oak dresser is an important piece of furniture to have in a period dining room and of course, your bedroom. This is because a dresser is something that was most prevalent in Victorian times, and was most often used as side tables for dressing food before serving, but in the bedroom dressers were and are used for storing clothes.
If you are looking for a dresser to enhance the appearance of your bedroom but you are finding them too expensive, then you should consider buying an unfinished pine dresser. Purchasing an unfinished pine dresser and then finishing it works out amazingly cheap and much better than putting your money in a finished dresser which might not suit your needs. You can find an unfinished pine dresser almost anywhere. You can check online and search for online auction websites or online furniture dealers and they are sure to have an unfinished dresser made from pine for sale. They are not very expensive and the amount you will spend in having them finished is not much either. You yourself could put on your working gloves and attempt finishing your pine dresser if you have attempted something like it before.
Among the many styles of handmade wooden furniture that are still favored today is the Queen Anne style. The Queen Anne style of handmade wooden furniture was first made popular in America between 1720 to 1760 and can be distinguished from other styles by the signature cyma, or S-curve, that is seen in the feet of a dresser or chair, and may also be worked into other parts of a piece of furniture. These S-curves blend well with modern styles of decorating by softening the look of a heavy piece of furniture with the gentle curves. The Queen Anne style of furniture is historically made from walnut, which is definitely a Colonial American tradition. Handmade dressers today are made from all kinds of wood, like butternut, cherry, mahogany or maple. Like walnut, butternut wood is prized for its soft, light yellow highlights and darker grains.
Finishing the unfinished pine dresser would involve putting a new coat of paint on it, adding or removing an extra draw to suit your needs or just to polish it. When you buy an unfinished piece of furniture and then work at it you have the advantage of making it exactly as per your requirements and according to your taste. Before you set out to do the finishing yourself, it will help if you do some background research on the topic. You could do some research online and look at models of unfinished dressers people have put together. This way you will even get some new design ideas and you will know what exactly is considered modern yet useful in the making of bedroom dressers. When you have some information on what things you will need, how much time you will take and also some new, interesting style and design ideas, then your unfinished pine dresser will become an amazing finished dresser.
