Waterfall dressers aren't my favorites although I don't hesitate to buy them. That's because their flat drawer fronts provide a welcoming surface for my ideas. Their "waterfall" curve at the top also inspires me to allow my ideas to fall from the top down the front of the dresser. Some of my other waterfalls (click each image be taken to a blog post):

The current silver dresser was taped off with Frog Tape then painted two coats of Martha Stewart Silver. After the tape was removed, the dresser lacked interest so I scratched the surface with 60 grit sand paper to achieve a finish that resembles worn out stainless steel. I've done this sort of scratching with sand paper on another piece.

The design came from a sketch I did almost two years ago and I think it works well as its angles follow the angles in the inlaid wood. If you keep a sketchbook, take a look back at old ideas... you might find one worth pursuing! If you don't keep a sketchbook, consider starting one this weekend!
