I scored this dresser for FREE. It’s old and unique and I have high expectations for it to spruce up my foyer. It is painted so ugly so it’s been living in our garage for several months.
Isn’t it beautiful? I love how shabby chic the shape is and the cute little key holes.
The sides are cool too!
I love the curved drawers. I have plans to mod podge some fabric or pretty paper in the bottom.
The handles are glass. Not sure I will keep them but they are very unique.
THIS BLOG POST is my inspiration for this piece. Does it not look crazy identical to my dresser? Not sure I will mimic the same colors/hardware she did, but I love the stained top/painted bottom combo.
STEP 1: Strip off years and years of paint and hopefully find pretty wood.
This stuff will burn your skin! I learned it the hard way yesterday so today I work long sleeves/shirt and mask/gloves.
I think every inch of this dresser will need to be stripped 3-4 times. Geez!
Done for the night! It’s going to take a lot more work than I anticipated but I know it will be worth it!
3 hours later of scraping 4+ layer of paint later and I officially will never paint over paint. WHY do people do this???? If I didn’t love this dresser, I would’ve given up!
Stay tuned for more on this project!
