Hello Sweet Friends! It’s Themed Furniture Thursday around here and I have a dresser makeover to share with you today!
If you are new to my blog, welcome! I’ve got a great makeover for you. However if you have been with me more than a couple of months, you may feel a bit of deja vu!
Remember Grandma’s Vintage Dresser I shared back in August:
This was one of a set of vintage dressers I acquired from my husband’s Grandmother’s estate. Here is the other one:
I painted this one to match and decided to share it today because I knew it was perfect for this month’s theme: Glitz and Glamour!
I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I used.
As you can tell, I painted this and photographed it at the same time as the first one.
Definitely an improvement! I strayed from my usual more shabby look with this set, and I am loving the clean lines.
The fresh gold hardware is a pretty contrast against the clean bright white.
Like the first dresser, because I had no plans to shabby this one up, I decided to use Ultra Pure White latex from Behr in a Satin finish. This did require a quick sanding first as well as a coat of primer. For this I used Rustoleum Primer in white:
My Homeright Spray Shelter was perfect for this task. More prep than chalk paint, but no sealer was needed in the end.
I used the same fabric to line the drawers as well…very glamorous indeed:
This was a bolt of fabric I purchased at a deep discount online, but it didn’t work out for its intended purpose. Luckily it was the perfect fabric to line the drawers for these pieces. I used Matte Mod Podge to attach the fabric, brushing it on like a glue. A tip for cutting perfectly straight pieces for projects like this is to use a rotary cutter and straight edge. You can purchase them in a kit with a cutting mat like this one. I used mine all the time!
Are you ready to see what my friends did with their furniture pieces for this month’s “Glitz and Glamour” theme?
I hope you didn’t mind this deja vu makeover!
I’ve been working on a really fun project recently that I am excited to share with you next week. I made something with these pretty girl’s clothes I combed the thrift store for:
