Old White, distressed dresser; Classic

Hi friends! Well the garage became quite full this weekend and I'll be working steadily over the next week or so to complete both custom orders and my own finds, (including a beloved family heirloom, my first dining set in a long time, and an experimental piece...). Most of what you'll see from me here will be furniture transformations, at least for a little while. So let the good times roll!...



When I have the opportunity by both space and time to work on my own found pieces, I love to hunt for versatility; pieces that can swing more than one way. This piece, refinished in Old White by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, is the epitome of versatility. Place the TV on top and add a dash of sophistication to the family room. Stand it up against the wall in the dining room to double as an elegant buffet and serving ware storage piece. Or complete a bedroom with a vintage vibe with a dresser capable keeping all garments organized.

Through gentle distressing of the warm off-white color and reattaching the original aged brass hardware, this piece has a distinctly sophisticated vintage feel.

Timeless custom grey dresser

Hi guys! I'm excited to kick off the week with a hot-out-the-garage newly refinished dresser. Dressers are my favorite. <3

When I acquired this one I didn't have a specific plan of action in mind. I kicked around a few ideas but it really wasn't until I took an afternoon to spend working on the piece that I finally decided on a look.

Classic. Elegant. Sophisticated. Timeless.

Those were the words that came to mind when I stood there looking at this dresser before even pulling out my paintbrush. It's got beautiful lines with classic details and I really wanted to keep the character intact. I decided on a soft, neutral color, (50/50 Paris Grey + Old White by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint), and used the original hardware, which I just think is so lovely. I'm not opposed to changing out hardware and have done so on many pieces, but sometimes these old brassy pulls look so elegant to me, especially when backed by a soft neutral white, grey, cream or khaki.

It's been a while since I've worked my hand over some dentil molding. What a sweet and sophisticated detail!

I used a light touch when distressing this one. I just wanted to highlight the lines of the body and drawers.
