raeca’s dresser redo

Back in the spring we did a major furniture purge. It was at the time we got rid of both of our desks which resulted in us making this awesome desk that I love. We also got rid of Raeca’s massive dresser/change table -it was a beast, let me tell you! You actually don’t even need to take my word for it, take a look for yourself, here’s the photo I posted when we sold it:

That thing is solid wood and was a literal and figurative pain to carry down to our main level when we sold it.

With that thing gone we obviously needed some sort of a replacement, after all, little girls have oodles of clothes (and they grow so quickly)!

I’m kicking myself now that I never took an actual before photo of this dresser. I found it on Kijiji for a mere $15, and sadly this is the best “before” photo I can find:

An awesome piece but definitely in need of a little TLC.

Jared and I discussed how we wanted to paint it, we chose to do white for the base and the same color as our walls for the drawers and then white handles. The people that lived in our house before us actually left some extra grey paint from the walls and white paint from the doors and trim, and we had some white spray paint and the sand paper for sanding it down before hand so we didn’t even need to buy anything for this furniture redo -how sweet is that?!

Full credit goes to Jared as he sanded and painted this baby all himself. I so love how it turned out!

Also, I seem to have caught the furniture redo bug -more before and afters to come!!

with love,
Chantel

P.S. Next week I’ll be taking another blog break -using the time to relax from blogging and get some of my projects done. Have a great week!!

    Love it! Vintage redone furnish is so much more fun/pocket friendly than the newer stuff. Great find!
