Dresser Makeover


~Dresser Makeover~ 

The first piece of furniture that I fell in love with, the first piece that was officially mine, and still, one of my absolute favorite pieces of furniture, is my childhood dresser! An old school tongue-in-groove, 4-drawer dresser. A piece I will cherish my whole life, and the kind of piece that makes anywhere I’m living feel like home. This lady had her first makeover approximately 25 years ago during one of my early bedroom re-decors, when I helped mom paint my furniture all white… of course. Her second paint job the summer before I moved to Chicago for design school, and the third circa 2007 on a dreary city day. Today I’m sharing the fourth dresser makeover of this fabulous furniture piece!!!

Dresser Makeover: Before

Sharkskin and silver
nice contrast…
…but she’s been wearing this since 2007!
Chose a bright, crisp grey – Horizon by Benjamin Moore
Removed the hardware and taped up drawer details to preserve the white drawer contrast trim.
Added a new coat of white by hand after removing the tape.
A fresh coat of Krylon silver for her jewelry!

Bright, icy and airy

Latest dresser makeover is done! New color, Horizon by Benjamin Moore, is a nice cool neutral and will work beautifully for years to come. I love how the silver and grey create a clean, cozy and elegant feel. A feel quite perfect for any woman’s bedroom! Your own room is one place you should feel the most comfortable and the most beautiful. Pretty painted furniture is a perfect way to help you feel just that and help you to love living in your own life!
