Funky Dresser

This is another Craigslist find.  Pretty beat up, and had a strange floral motif on the front of one of the drawers.  This piece needed a lot of wood putty and sanding.  I painted it with ASCP in Paris Grey.  I did the stripes in ASCP Duck Egg.  It was looking a little too sweet.. I needed to dirty it up a little.  So, I got out my Valspar Antique Glaze and used that over the entire dresser.  I sprayed the original hardware with an Antique Bronze paint, and replaced the top 2 knobs with knobs from Anthropologie that I got on clearance : ).

  1. What a pretty makeover Sarah. I love the color and the stripe on the side adds interest. Thanks for linking up to the newbie party.

  2. I love this dresser! I am dying to get my hands on one like this with the wheels still in tact! Great find & Great Re-do!


  3. Oooo, I love it! Great job. Do you put the glaze on after it has been waxed? I've been wanting to try using a glaze over chalk paint, but just haven't yet.

    1. Thanks, Stephanie!! I put the glaze directly onto the paint. For this piece, I used a clear poly on the entire thing, after I glazed it : )

  4. I love the pop of color makes it a little modern :)

  5. neat dresser I love the fact that it has that sweet antique look but it isn't all white. I'm your newest newbie party fan :)

  6. Your dresser turned out so cute! Love the color and the way you accented the raised piece in the front.
    I'm a new follower and would be delighted if you'd follow me back on GFC.

  15. This got me to think about redoing my dresser, I would love it if you shared this here:

  16. What a great clor combination! Nicely done!

  17. That would be "color" of course. Why do I always notice my typos just as I hit publish?

  18. I love this chest of drawers! the color is great, and it looks fabulous with the fan sitting on it.
