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.

If you find yourself in need of a storage space for your kids clothing or toys, you wouldnt want something thats fancy and may be passed on through generations as an heirloom. Use less expensive wood on this type of dresser so that you may get quality without hurting your purse. 2. Determine the dressers level of usage and visibility once completed. If you plan on using your dresser highly, use quality hardwood that will be able to withstand the usual wear and tear and will not scratch easily. However, if you find that you will not be using the dresser often, you may opt to use wood options that are more affordable albeit a little less durable.

It can be a very messy job - and no one wants to breathe paint fumes if they dont have to, so take your dresser outside before you begin. Start by sanding your kitchen dresser thoroughly, since this will help your paint stick to the wood and save you a lot of trouble down the road. Choose the color of paint according to the kitchen paint and kitchen wall tiles you use indoors; the idea is to match or coordinate the color with your existing decor, though it is not necessary to have a precise match.

They are some of the easiest to find bedroom furniture dressers in furniture stores. They take up a lot of floor and wall space and are thus best suited for spacious bedrooms, and where large storage capacity is required. The more expensive long dresser may be made from mahogany or maple while the lower priced ones are built from pine or oak wood. There is no limit on the type of design you can go for and you can stain the wood in any color to match your overall bedroom theme.

Traditionally, a gentlemans dresser for his bedroom was made of oak or mahogany, usually with two top drawers for stockings, gloves, cravats handkerchiefs and other accouterments. On the top would be placed lace covers and a mirror, that should ideally match the wood of the dresser. The remaining three drawers would be single and capacious enough to carry shirts, woollens and breeches. Ladies dressers for bedroom were normally made of cherry or walnut and often featured only single drawers. The defining feature of a ladies dresser is the larger bottom drawer which was specifically designed for her to store linens and fine clothes for the day she became wed. Most dressers contain four drawers but they can have as many as eight or even twelve. Among the most famous cabinet makers of quality English dressers was Thomas Chippendale, whose fine cabinets are still much sought after.

Purchasing your furniture in a set will ensure that you have matching colors for the bed frame, night stands, dresser, and armoire. If you choose to make your own or buy each piece separately, be sure to get the same shades of wood. For example, you would not want to purchase a cherry dresser to go with an oak bed. Likewise, you want to make sure that each are made with a similar design and materials. It can be a good idea to build your own bedroom dresser. This will allow you to have one that will be most beneficial to you. Money can also be saved by constructing your own furniture. Consider the purposes you want your dresser to have. Determine how much clothing you wish to fold and place into the piece of furniture. Do you want to store all foldable clothing in the dresser, or just undergarments, socks, and pajamas? The amount of items you want to put inside a dresser will help decide what shape to give the piece.

The same dovetail joinery that craftsmen use to create sturdy handmade desks is also used to build elegant tops, sides and drawers of handmade dressers. The body of the dresser, or the carcass, is held together with dovetail joints that add an element of design as well as making it extremely strong. Other dressers employ frame and panel construction that is highlighted by mortise and tenon joinery that is accented with wooden pins. Combining both techniques for any style of handmade dresser is what makes the carcass durable and the drawers move in and out smoothly.

Most dressers with mirrors are low, about 2-3 feet tall, with a slot for a low stool or chair. The cabinets and drawers flank the space for the chair. These dressers have big tops that function as tables to place cosmetics and other trinkets. The cabinets and drawers usually are not deep and spacious as smaller articles are usually placed in them. Newer designs of dressers with mirrors take out the space for the chair and replace them with cabinets. Furthermore, newer designs are taller and have more spacious cabinets. Newer designs seem to combine the functionalities of a vanity station and a storage space for clothes and bigger articles. These dressers are bigger, and so these are suited for bigger rooms with more space. But there are smaller and more compact dressers with mirrors available in the market today. Although smaller, they still provide the same function.
