Teal Vintage Modern Dresser Makeover

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

Hi Friends!

Today's furniture makeover is one of my FAVORITES! I love the style of this dresser, the color I chose, the hardware I picked out from D.Lawless Hardware, everything about it!


(The paint used in this post was so kindly sent to me by the team over at Country Chic Paint, and the hardware was so kindly sent to me by D. Lawless Hardware, but all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own :))

It was such a fun makeover and it was so worth all of the cleaning, sanding, patching, and getting the weird smells out.

I picked up this adorable vintage dresser off of Facebook market place and as soon as I saw it I KNEW I had to have it!

I brought this baby home and immediately got to work on it because I was so excited! 

Products Used:
Dark Walnut Stain
Polyurethane Top Coat

I prepped this piece with an all purpose cleaner and scrubbed it down good!  It is a vintage piece so it was pretty dirty.  Always prep you pieces!  Even if they don't look dirty, there's dirt...I promise.

Next up I grabbed my orbital sander and some 80 grit sandpaper and started sanding the top of this baby!  I HATE sanding, so I ma so glad this wasn't too bad and the finish came off decently easy.  I finished it up by going over it with 120 grit, and then finished it off with 320 grit for a smooth finish!

To finish prep on this piece, I patched the holes on the long drawers and patched any scrapes on the body of the dresser!

Then I just grabbed a tack cloth and got all of the dust from sanding off!

Now its time for paint! My favorite part😍

I picked out this color from Country Chic Paint called Jitterbug and I love it so much!  It is the perfect teal color and I want to paint everything with it now! Good thing I have some left ;)

I gave this pretty piece 3 coats of this paint and let it dry completely before adding my top coat.

While my paint was drying I grabbed my dark walnut stain and stained the top of the dresser.  I did 2 coats of this stain for a pretty deep color.

Then I just sealed this baby up with my trusty CCP clear coat.  I did 3 coats of this for ultimate protection and a satin finish.
The top got sealed with my favorite water based poly topcoat.

Now it's time to add the new hardware.  I reached out to Derrick from D. Lawless Hardware again and he was happy to send me some more pretty hardware of my choice.  I chose these gorgeous champagne bronze ring pulls and the matching knobs!

These knobs completed this piece so well and I am obsessed.  I want to use them on everything!!

I cleaned up the casters and put them back on and this baby was ready for staging and a photo shoot.

I love how you can still see the wood grain through the paint! It makes the piece look so unique!

If you notice, my shooting set up is a little different now because I moved my studio to the basement because it is starting to get COLD here!! 

So, I hope you love the new set up!  I am sure I'll make some modifications as I go ;)

Let me know what you think about this piece!  And don't forget I have a code for you to use on Country Chic Paint below!
