The Unfinished Vintage Dresser

This chunky vintage dresser from the 1970s has good ‘bones’ but was boring.  I wanted to make it beautiful yet elegant.  From looking at the ‘before’ photo it seems hard to imagine this piece looking anywhere near elegant but I’m a determined artist.   As much as I normally like to keep the original vintage hardware when possible I decided that these pulls had to go!  I must have dozens of this style in my shop, I’m simply not a fan.

One cool thing about this dresser is that it already has its own special characteristics before I even touched it.  Inside the spacious clean drawers are a newspaper print lining the bottoms.  How cool is that?

A Shabby Chic Painted Dresser Makeover

After prepping the vintage dresser it was painted with a neutral antique white base and then a gorgeous stencil design was added to the drawer fronts in a soft gold.  The hardware was replaced with awesome Chippendale style pulls from D. Lawless Hardware making this chunky boring dresser a new elegant and romantic piece. The stenciled dresser was also distressed along the edges for a shabby chic feel.
