Ive had this ordinary dresser in my furniture stash for a few months and finally finished it up a couple days ago – I was so glad to finally get it done and Im lovin’ the way it turned out.
My client needed a TV console, so the top 2 drawers were removed and the middle cabinet door was taken off (sorry, I cant find the pic of the “oh so beautiful gold trimmed drawers and cabinet”, it was gorg – bummer).
Once the drawers were removed, I cut some MDF to fit where the top drawers used to be. Then I got some tiny little decorative trim and put that around each drawer opening and the cupboard opening – just to give everything a finished look.
Then the dresser was primed and painted “Gris” by SW. I distressed everything and then used ebony Minwax stain to glaze it – same process as I did in the dresser in this post. Then I clear coated it with a high gloss poly by Varathane – my favorite brand by the way.
And then when all was done…
Love the basket storage, perfect for remotes and stuff :) in my house I would find candy wrappers and q-tips in there.
Loved the way the glaze set in all that little trim molding and the molding going across the top of the dresser.
And there ya have it, a standard boring everyday dresser can be transformed into something AWESOME!!! Love it!!!
