Are you in need of some furniture painting inspiration? Well this post is for you!!
My neighbor was going to throw this dresser in the dumpster until I willingly took it off his hands! It was a gorgeous shade of maple (can you hear the sarcasm in my voice?). Although the color wasn't what I was looking for, the shape and drawers were perfect. Plus I was really in love with the small metal details in the middle of the dresser!
I began by sanding the entire thing down with an electric sander. This was quite the process, but I knew I wanted to stain it, so it had to be done!
Looks better already right?!
I love how you can see the wood grain.
And here is the finished product! I stained the dresser a deep brown color, and painted the drawers with SW Seal Skin (my favorite dark grey).
I traded out the old dated hardware for these new brushed nickle ones.
It is the perfect dresser in my boys' room. It has a masculine, rustic, industrial feel that goes so well in the space! Oh and by the way, that adorable framed quote above the dresser is available for FREE on my blog! Just click here for the free download!
