Navy Blue Drexel Dresser Makeover

Monday, May 11, 2020

Hi Friends!  I'm going to be honest right now, I have been DREADING writing blog posts lately.  I just have so many pieces that need posts written and I can't seem to keep up.

Plus, the weather is getting nicer so i'm getting to work on pieces outside finally, and I want to take full advantage of it!  I've been pumping out pieces so fast recently and I am usually working all day, so when it comes to doing computer work I and just not feeling it haha.  

But, don't worry.  I am not going anywhere and blog posts and makeovers with still be coming out every week!  I may stop holding myself to such a strict Tuesday and Friday schedule for uploads and just upload whenever I have a chance :)

ANYWAY... Today's post is going to be all about how I updated this old Drexel tallboy and gave it a pretty navy and hold makeover!

NAVY BLUE DREXEL DRESSER MAKEOVER



(Some of the paint used in this post was so kindly sent to me by the team over at Country Chic Paint)

Products:

Bondo

I picked up this piece and it was in pretty good shape as far as the bones go.  Cosmetics were a different story.  The finish wasn't great and there were some knicks and dings here and there, but I have definitely seen worse....oh way worse.  



So, I removed all of the hardware, cleaned the piece up, used my bondo to fill the old holes on the two bottom drawers and sanded everything smooth.

I removed all of the dust and applied some topcoat just to the areas I put bondo so the paint wouldn't absorb into that differently and show where I filled!  I also drilled my new hardware holes because I wanted to do simple knobs all the way down the piece :)

Next I mixed up my paint.  I used 16 oz of Country Chic Paint's Midnight Sky mixed with about 8 oz of Liquorice to get this gorgeous deep almost dusty navy!




I sprayed my piece using my Homeright Paint sprayer and did 2 coats.  After all of the paint was completely dry I sprayed my topcoat on doing 3 coats!

I added my gorgeous champagne gold knobs from D.Lawless Hardware and this pretty thing was done!








I love how this piece got a masculine look while still keeping things soft and modern with the pretty hardware!
