Overhauled Dresser with Vintage Blueprints & Yardsticks

Hey folks!  Sorry I've been away from posting a little while.  I've been locked up in GadgetSponge Garage working on several projects.  I should have several posts coming up in the near future as things roll out soon.  I just finished this vintage low dresser.  I used my router to embed lots of nice vintage yardsticks into the surface.  Inside each field lies an original old blueprint with lots of nice detail....

What do you think!?!  I'm going to hate to see this one leave my possession.  I was able to match up the paint pretty good with some Annie Sloan chalk paint.  Lots of careful distressing and several coats of wax finished things up.  Here's lots more pics of the piece....

The dresser measures 45" wide x 21" deep x 33" tall.  

This one along with the other seven might still be available either in the GADGETSPONGE ETSY SHOP or at Timeline Antiques & Collectibles Mall in Shreveport, LA.

I'm sure it's becoming redundant to hear me say, "I love this piece," but it's true. I love this piece. It's a stroke of genius. I love the inlayed rulers and the blue prints make a really cool covering. Genius!
