Amazing Dresser Transformation

This to me is one of the most incredible transformation I have done.  I almost did not buy this piece  because it was sitting on the floor , no base, no legs, and the paint this poor thin had...oh my...well, I took the challenge.  I stripped this piece completely, top, body, drawers, the entire piece became raw wood.  I decided to paint it a almost white with just a hint of grey color, custom made.  I took my sample to HD and decided on Behr's paint and primer with stain block in semi-gloss, the top was sanded with 100 to 2500 grit for a mirror like finish.  I also water sanded it for that extra smooth feel.  I decided to use Dark Walnut stain from Minwax.

This dresser has two side doors that when open reveal beautiful wood drawers, those I also stained them like the top.  It is a very long piece, but I think is beautiful.

Here is the before.....

  8. I have two similar mid century dressers in the blonde look. I have been struggling on what to do with them to update them because they are still very functional. This is perfect. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. That's what's so great about wood pieces....you can re-paint anytime you want a change or you strip and stain...so many choices.
