Green and Gold Dresser: How to Fix a Broken Furniture Leg

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and an even better Monday!  I am so excited to share this makeover with y'all today, as always.  But this time, I got to use one of Country Chic's new paint colors called Fireworks!

(The paint used in this makeover was kindly sent to me by the team at Country Chic Paint but all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own!)

They were so kind to send me a few of their new colors from their new Lustrum Collection that was just released and I couldn't wait to use them!  This green color is what dreams are made of......seriously😍


So I found this bad boy on Facebook Marketplace from the same people I usually buy my pieces from, because they are the best😉 

This was definitely a project, as I had to repair a leg, patch the other chipped veneer on the legs and sand down the whole top.  But typical me did all that and finished it in like 3 days.  I can't be stopped.

Products Used:


For this makeover I began by cleaning my piece with a typical all purpose cleaner as well as removing and soaking the hardware in that same cleaner.  I knew that these pulls were going to come so clean, and I was right.  They came out to a gorgeous gold!

Next up I spackled all of the chipped veneer and sanded it down once it was dry.  You might have to do this once or twice to get it completely smooth, just be patient with it!

I also sanded down the whole top of the dresser because it was very chipped and textured.  Luckily it sanded down pretty easy!

The last step before paint was fixing that darn leg.  This is the first time I have ever done this by myself but I knew I could do it. (I was a bad blogger and have no pictures on how I did this..I'm v sorry)

To do this I used Bondo...yes what they fix cars with.  Just follow the directions on the can and mix your ingredients together.  Next wearing gloves I just taped a little border around my legs to create the shape and poured the bond on.

Just let that sit and once its completely dry I just sanded it down and shaped it to match the other leg. And that't it!  Pretty easy!

Next I just painted the whole dresser with Country Chic's color in Fireworks with the tiniest amount of the color Pebble Beach added and did about 3 coats of this mixture!

Lastly, I applied a clear wax for a smooth finish and put the hardware back on and she was done! 

How gorgeous is this piece?!  It isn't a mcm dresser but the colors definitely give it that vibe and I am obsessed with it!

Now for some closeups!😍

Look at her!! And her fresh new leg! I am obsessed with how this turned out and I hope you are too!
