Before & After: Large Dresser Reveal
Remember when I scored a matching set of dressers for FREE? I shared with you the small dresser transformation here. And today I will share the large dresser transformation. In case you don’t remember exactly what it looked like before, here is a refresher!Very long (90”), very old, and very ugly. I’d like to think it’s appearance has improved since then. We removed the mirror, covered it in three coats of tuxedo black (to match the dining room doors) semi-gloss paint, and painted the legs hosta flower to tie in the smaller dresser. We have an opposites attract thing happening. Check it out.As well as with the smaller dresser I decided to keep the original hardware. I wanted to do real pulls, but couldn’t find any large enough. And I’m actually kind of loving the vintage vibe the original hardware provides. I do plan on capping the corners in brass, so they match the smaller piece. I’ll share that update when it happens. Again, I had my doubts about painting these press board pieces but I’ve been pleasantly surprised with their transformations. It makes me wonder how many great pieces I’ve turned my nose up at over the years, thinking they couldn’t be saved. Shame on me.
