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.

With user friendly directions and easy to connect parts that do not require heavy amount of tools, the Manhattan can be set up in a manner of 30 minutes or less. Most of the parts are already assembled together, so there are not a lot of necessary parts to put together. The individual drawers are built on a roller glide mechanism, so the drawers wont fall out of the dresser when pulled to its maximum distance. Most people will tell you that this is an improvement over the old way drawers were built. Drawers without the roller glide, especially on 6 dresser drawers, are a safety hazard not just for adults, but children as well. Children can safely open a drawer on this product without adult supervision.

Originally minimal in embellishments, artisans today will play with the tradition by adding modern touches, like blending types of wood in the paneling. Contrasting natural woods, like maple and walnut, a craftsman can really highlight the beauty of the panel doors and drawers. Intentionally practical, these sideboard Shaker style dressers are perfect for storing dining room china, but the pieces of furniture are elegant enough on their own. Studio craftsmen make Shaker style sideboards look more contemporary by taking different types of natural wood and using the contrasting colors to distinguish subtle features of the piece of furniture. Darker wood might be used to make the knobs stand out, and glass paneling can even be used for the doors, which was not previously done. Studio craftsmen create handmade dressers that are very different than mass-produced dressers because artisans are free to design and build dressers that are unique and special for each and every client. Mass produced dressers cant be that special because they need to appeal to a wider variety of tastes. Working directly with a craftsman will let you create something together that speaks to your specific interests and style.

Some things are stored much more easily in a dresser rather than a full cupboard. Things can be kept in a more organized manner when kept in this piece of furniture and when they are kept in a neat way they can also be found with ease. • To fill space in a room- when you have a large bedroom then just the bed and the wardrobe are not enough to take up all the space of the room. The only other piece of furniture which you can logically place in the bedroom is a dresser. The dresser looks just right in the bedroom and it is useful in storing many things as well. When wardrobe space is insufficient- sometimes it makes more sense to put things in a dresser instead of placing an additional cupboard in the room, which invariably takes up a lot of space. To keep things which are needed frequently- people like to store their dressers with things that they use every day or very frequently like shoes, baby stuff, school things and more. These are all very good reasons for adding a dresser to every room in your home.

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.

For example, if you plan on a dresser that will have high visibility, use attractive wood and paint or stain finish that will be able to complement your decor. 3. Determine your skill level for the type of dresser you want to attempt on working on. If you want to make a dresser that will be an heirloom piece for future generations to enjoy, look into using only the hardiest of woods.

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.

For example, a bright red dresser would be the wrong choice for a bedroom with a classic, traditional theme and a neutral colored dresser would look all wrong in a modern, contemporary bedroom. Most dressers are available in wood stains like oak, cherry and mahogany. If you find yourself a little unsure about color a wood stain is probably the safest route to choose as they are the easiest to blend in with just about any style of room. No matter what color you choose make sure its not overpowering the rest of the room.
