Hi! I have a 12 drawer dresser. It is apart of a full set. I still have the bed, two night stands, and the tall dresser as well. I want to see how much this particular dresser is worth with 12 drawers. Please let me know what you think. I am debating to see if I should have it painted or to sell it.
Thanks for the help.
Hello. Because the market is very low for vintage furniture you may kill the price forever if you paint it. Painting will reduce the usefulness to a collector. The only caveat is that someone who is expert in shabby chic may give you advise to make it sell in the shabby chic market. What colors to choose, etc. The shabby market might be as temporary as beanie babies. It is a coin toss either way you go.
I just bought the same dresser with the the mirror at a yard sale for $75.00. How much is this dresser worth?
In speaking for Central Virginia vintage retail, this dress, in mint condition, would sell for about $250 on a good day. Big items are hard to move (literally and monetarily).
