Outdated Dresser Redo

Before & After.  Outdated dresser purchased at a furniture auction.
Hardware removed.  Top sanded and stained with walnut paste stain.  Door removed.  Rough sanded sides and painted with Sherwin Williams Repose Gray.  Distressed.  Waxed.  Rustic hardware added.  Thanks, Johnny, for helping with Rustic Hardware.

  2. Love it! What a great idea to expose those drawers! You did a lovely job. I am your newest follower. I hope you can visit me sometime too :)

  4. Beautiful redo--looks so much better! Thanks for linking up to Beyond the Picket Fence.

  5. what a lucky find and what an amazing transformation. it doesn't even look the same dresser!
    I love the white/walnut color contrast and the distressing adds so much character to the dresses. she's just a beauty and will definitely make a great addition fo your home.

  6. This is huge inspiration! I just bought a great vintage dresser (at auction), very similar to this one, and was at a loss of how to refinish/ paint it. I love the 2-tone look, with the top stained dark. Now that is what I am going to do. Thanks for the great idea!

    (and I am a new follower, will be back to read more!)


  7. we have a dresser, armoire, and end table in this exact set!! except my dresser is the opposite two doors with the hidden drawers on the outside and three drawers on the inside. glad to know it looks so nice without the doors because the handles and scrollwork is a bit over the top. I feel like I live in a secret garden behind the Beast's(Beauty and the) castle.

    1. Plus I was thinking the doors might be cool artwork with a new paint job!


Thank you, precious people, for taking time to comment on my blog. I am humbled.
