Inside and Out Dumpy Dresser Makeover

by on Oct 21, 2010

It’s not Monday so I hope Curbly doesn’t ground me, but I just HAVE to share this makeover with you. Why the hurry, you ask? Because on Tuesday I read a comment left on a big important design blog in which a disgruntled commenter got his undies in a bunch over not being privy to the writer’s step by step re-do process. To soothe some unnecessary DIY angst, I hope he finds his way to this very thorough tutorial by Mrs. Adventure. "An Antique Cupboard which is attractive"

Mrs. Adventure sanded the living daylights out of the laminate topped french provincial dresser and painted it with an oil based enamel. The upside of oil paint is there is no priming necessary. Although I wouldn’t think of black, it’s now a classic beauty. I really like the clean update with those aqua drawers and nickel hardware.
