My home is the other way up this week with painters inside giving the household room, eating room, and lobby a recent coat of paint in lighter colours. In case you noticed my Instagram tales you noticed the chaos. 🙂 In two days a flooring crew is coming to tear out the broken hardwood so we are able to substitute it and restain it.
I’ve had this chest of drawers sitting in my lobby for twelve years, I picked it up at a thrift retailer and stained it darkish walnut many moons in the past. I’ve at all times appreciated having a dresser like this by the entrance door for miscellaneous storage and a spot to set keys and mail. Our California home is conventional in type and this traditional piece suits the area effectively. For the reason that partitions have been repainted, I believed I’d replace the dresser too.
I primed and repainted it in a taupe hue and changed the previous knobs with timeless brass ring pulls (sources under). I used a brand new furnishings paint I’ve by no means used earlier than, the Country Chic line within the colour Soiree which has a matte end and coated very effectively. I’m so happy with the way it turned out!
I’m sharing an Instagram reels right now displaying the method of refinishing it together with all of the provides I used. It took lower than two hours to offer this dresser a brand new look.
I brightened the pulls with a coat of Gold Leaf Rub n’ Buff for further shine.
New pulls are a simple replace for any piece of furnishings. I maintain my eyes open for reasonably priced ones to improve furnishings, under are a couple of distinctive finances pleasant selections in brass to your furnishings or cupboard updates too.
