White Chest of Drawers

Hello Everyone!  Long time no post huh????  We bought a house last month and I have been a busy little bee.  My canvas went from furniture to walls:)  We are at a stand still until we can get the electrician out to fix a few things, so I got some time to paint a couple of pieces. 

I found 3 gorgeous pieces at a local thrift shop.  All three of them were solid wood and in very good shape.  They just needed some updating. 

Here is the first dresser before I got ahold of it.

I always say that I'm not going to paint with white anymore, but I always go back.  White furniture is my favorite.  Even though it takes a lot more time and effort, the outcome is so worth it.

I wanted a dark contrast with the white, so I used grey primer and then did a coat of black paint.

Here is the after!

I have another dresser with a mirror and the twin bed that matches this one.  I think I am going to sell them as a set.  Couldn't you just see these in a little girl's room???



  1. What a find! And you did an amazing job on it!

  2. I too favor white. Love how this turned out! Someone will be very lucky to get this.
    Blessings, Deborah

  3. Isn't it always awesome to find great pieces while thrifting!?! This turned out great. Nice layering.
