Hey there, beautiful Friends! I have a sweet makeover for y’all today!
You may remember this one from last Summer. I was contacted to see if I wanted to collaborate with Behr paint on a project. Would I like the opportunity to work with my favorite paint? Um, yes! I was only allowed to share a teaser photo of my project here on my blog, and you had to click over to their site to see the rest of the makeover.
Today I’m sharing the whole shebang here, including never before seen photos!
The furniture piece I chose for this one was one of my hubby’s grandmother’s dressers:
We acquired several of her pieces last Fall. This was just a simple wood dresser, but these simple pieces can be a lot of fun to play around with.
I decided to use one of my favorite new-to-me at the time Behr paint colors, Sunken Pool, that I made into DIY Chalk paint. (Recipe with video HERE.) I’ve since used this color many times, and it has become one of my favorites.
Here is how Grandma’s dresser turned out:
Almost doesn’t even look like the same dresser, Right??
I decided to fill in the holes on the top drawer:
This allowed me to add these beauties from Hobby Lobby:
They add so much charm.
The rest of the pulls were replaced with these pretty glass knobs I found at HomeGoods:
And do you spy that pretty fabric? That’s where the cottage inspiration comes from!
I found that at Hobby Lobby too. It coordinates perfectly with the paint color, Sunken Pool!
You can see a peek at the sides of the drawers here as well. I decided to add stripes to the sides using FrogTape:
I also added stripes to the sides of the dresser.
I really had fun with this one!
Wouldn’t this fit right in in a seaside beach cottage? Oh how I’d love to have one of those some day!
Here is another one of Grandma’s dressers that got a whole new look:
See how I updated this dresser HERE!
I’ll be back on Thursday sharing this dressing table that I scored for…ready for this?? $35!
See ya Thursday!!
UPDATE: No need to wait…see how this beauty turned out HERE now! I know you really want to know if I painted it! 🙂
