The Shabby Chic'er

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

This piece was in some rough shape when I picked it up.  The hardware was covered in paint and unusable without some soaking, scrubbing and stripping.  A task I will take on another day:)

As I began to sand away the thick messy layer of paint, the dresser took on a new look, and the inspiration began once again.

I decided to work with the dresser and it's elements and aim for a more natural shabby chic look.

I sanded away the drippy paint on the drawer sides and added new hardware.  It was a small fortune for 20 dresser knobs but definitely worth it.  I love the final transformation!  What do you think?

This piece measures 34"h x 16" d x 51" w.
