chest of drawers redo




Wanted to share a chest of drawers re-do with you. Forgot the before pic, but you can prob envision it, an older piece that was passed along to us with this style of pulls:
What I did to it:
-puttied the holes, finely sanded the whole piece, spray painted it silver 
-added smears of a champagne color paint
-touches of Bree wax (to kick back the metallic silver some)
-sanded the edges/corners
-modge podged pages of a old book & then scrapbook paper to the fronts of the drawers
-polyurethaned the drawer fronts & measured/drilled holes
-added these sale bin coordinating/mismatched pulls from anthropologie

Much to my hubby's dismay, these type projects can linger for months, just as this one did. So it started in Nov & finished now. You know with kiddos, you start and stop all the time.

Awesome Job Sarah! You should be so proud...might be an heirloom in your family one day for sure. Might try that with the dresser in Walker's room--it's in need of some TLC. Way to go Mom--and yes it is quite an accomplishement with all that we moms have going on.
Way to go--ej williams
