Vintage French Provincial Dresser Turquoise
A Red Bird
A Red Bird is mother-daughter business which specializes in refinishing and reupholstering vintage and antique furniture.
Red birds take our breath away with their beauty, and we hope that the beauty of our furnishings takes your breath away as well. We gather great furniture, accents, and supplies to create unique things for your home or place of business.
We select items based on their beauty and quality. Every piece has a past -- its own story. Minor cosmetic imperfections help tell that story, so they are left intact. When large or structurally compromising flaws are discovered, we always repair them. Please message or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or requests; don’t hesitate to ask!
We also make custom pieces -- particularly machinist chests and ottomans. Additionally, we can refinish/reupholster something that you already own.
Because each piece is unique, we think they deserve a beautiful name as well. Each of our pieces are given one at the end of their time with us.

Meet Calliope! A Red Bird has had a lot of fun giving this native Chicagoan dresser a bohemian makeover this past week. First, we removed the faded and chipped finish, then enhanced the exterior with a dark Kona stain. Deep turquoise was strategically hand painted within the borders of the drawer fronts. The borders themselves were buffed to a golden shine. For a surprise pop of color, we painted the sides of the drawers a bright ochre. Let us know if you love her as much as we do!
A section of the wood applique on the bottom of the lower drawer is missing. Visual imperfection in veneer on dresser top . No warping, divots, or scratches. Drawers in excellent working condition.
