My home is the wrong way up this week with painters inside giving the household room, eating room, and lobby a contemporary coat of paint in lighter colours. Should you noticed my Instagram tales you noticed the chaos. 🙂 In two days a flooring crew is coming to tear out the broken hardwood so we will substitute it and restain it.
I’ve had this chest of drawers sitting in my lobby for twelve years, I picked it up at a thrift retailer and stained it darkish walnut many moons in the past. I’ve at all times favored having a dresser like this by the entrance door for miscellaneous storage and a spot to set keys and mail. Our California home is conventional in model and this traditional piece matches the house properly. Because the partitions have been repainted, I assumed I’d replace the dresser too.
I primed and repainted it in a taupe hue and changed the outdated knobs with timeless brass ring pulls (sources under). I used a brand new furnishings paint I’ve by no means used earlier than, the Country Chic line within the coloration Soiree which has a matte end and coated very properly. I’m so happy with the way it turned out!
I’m sharing an Instagram reels right now displaying the method of refinishing it together with all of the provides I used. It took lower than two hours to present this dresser a brand new look.
I brightened the pulls with a coat of Gold Leaf Rub n’ Buff for additional shine.
New pulls are a straightforward replace for any piece of furnishings. I hold my eyes open for reasonably priced ones to improve furnishings, under are a number of distinctive funds pleasant selections in brass to your furnishings or cupboard updates too.
