French and English dressers were also made from different types of wood, and this can make a difference to their appearance. Some later dressers have glazed panels, and some just have shelves, which were originally for displaying plates and china on. Nowadays dressers are used for many different functions, rather than just being display cabinets.
Modern dressers still feature mirrors but they are usually placed as "vanity stations" with a slot for a low stool or chair. The cabinets and drawers flank the space for the chair. The spacious work tops of modern dressers are designed for keeping cosmetics and other trinkets on them without appearing messy or cluttered.
You can find an unfinished pine dresser almost anywhere. You can check online and search for online auction websites or online furniture dealers and they are sure to have an unfinished dresser made from pine for sale. They are not very expensive and the amount you will spend in having them finished is not much either. You yourself could put on your working gloves and attempt finishing your pine dresser if you have attempted something like it before.
So you have finally decided to get yourself a dresser - not only, but an oak dresser as well. This is really a good and wise decision, as investing in oak dressers, or any form of oak furniture, is an investment for a life. An oak dresser is an important piece of furniture to have in a period dining room and of course, your bedroom. This is because a dresser is something that was most prevalent in Victorian times, and was most often used as side tables for dressing food before serving, but in the bedroom dressers were and are used for storing clothes.
