Im soooo glad I had Holly's help with this dresser because I gave it a go on my own and it just wasn't transformed enough. I swear she is like a furniture superhero!
When we found it, it was white, cute, and in pretty good condition. Really it just had 80's hardware, lacked character, and had some strange drawings/writing on the side (pretty sure it was gibberish). So I brought it home and painted it a shade called Silver Dust by Behr. I felt like it hardly looked any different. Going from pure white to an almost white (with the slightest hint of grey) was just not as exciting as I had hoped for
Back to the drawing board!
I had some leftover paint from one of our upstairs bathrooms in a shade by Benjamin Moore called Stonington Grey. Yes this is still grey but it is a pale blue-grey and it was just the right shade. In comes Holly! Thank goodness! We worked on the dresser at her house and her sprayer is a gem! Holly added her distressing magic and voila!!! I am in LOVE with my new dresser!
I was pretty much at a loss for ideas when it came to the hardware for the dresser. I know what I like and I have all these ideas floating around in my head but I have a bit of a hard time deciding on an idea and rolling with it. Holly suggested that since the dresser was in the kitchen area I might like to try those sweet label holders we have seen on a couple of her pieces. What a great idea!
Here is the before:
And here is the after!:
It really is more beautiful in person!
Thank you for your help Holly!(The variation in colour between the close-ups to the farther away shots are because I took the close-ups at night so there was harldly any lighting...)
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
