Hey Friends! It’s Themed Furniture Thursday and today I’m sharing the makeover of this dressing table:
I found it at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been riding around with it in the back of my car because my garage is SO full, ya’ll! I really need to get out there and straighten it up. Why does being creative have to be so messy?
When I was deciding on what piece of furniture to use for this month’s theme, this had to be the one!
This month’s theme is “black”. You know that’s a tough one for me because most everything I paint is the total opposite of black!
Here is what I came up with:
See that little bit of black on the top?
Does that qualify for this month’s “black” theme?
No? How about this:
I think it works, don’t you?
I used my orbital sander on this one so it ended up more distressed than I usually like, but I think I love how it looks on this piece.
The tray and candlesticks came from Pier one. The little Frenchy metal bucket came from Michaels.
I created this damask motif with my silhouette cameo…
It adds a pretty detail to the top. I made a stencil out of contact paper, then spray painted the motif on.
I got the silhouette for Christmas. It has made me lazy though because now I don’t want to transfer and paint in my graphics the old school way! No silhouette? No problem! You can purchase a beautiful damask stencil HERE. (No affiliation, just beautiful stencils!)
The stripes were created using Frog Tape:
I also did this on another dressing table I painted a couple of years ago. You can see that one here.
The mirror was missing when I purchased this dressing table:
So I decided a chalk board would be a fun replacement:
I made it out of this framed print I found in my frame stash…au revoir Paris Fashion!
It was the perfect color and size woohoo! It is also very lightweight, so I was able to attach the finished chalkboard by using E6000 glue and letting it sit overnight.
It says “You are beautiful!”
The hardware came off of a drawer that I found curbside. You might remember I used that drawer to make this holder for my kids’ backpacks.
The petite glass knobs from the faux drawer in the middle came from Hobby Lobby…
The drawers and the center are lined with fabric that I originally bought over a year ago to make a cushion for a table that I wanted to turn into a bench for the foot of my bed. BOYTHATWASAMOUTHFUL. 🙂
I adhered it to the bottom with matte Mod Podge. I just brushed it on the bottom like glue.
I think this totally works for our “black” theme!

I’ve been working on my sectional slipcover tutorial and hope to share that soon! 🙂
