It is a fairly common oak dresser, with some nice details, dovetailed drawers--but, it had seen better days. It was fairly beat up, with lots of scratches and dings and dents.
I knew it was a perfect candidate for one of the new Fusion Mineral Paint colors from the Michael Penney collection. I chose to paint it in Putty, which is a greigy, perfect neutral color that will coordinate with anything.
Bonus fall centerpiece idea: I threw some gourds in a pedestal wood bowl I painted and added some copper string lights. It adds a nice, warm glow in the evening.
