Have you ever bought a dresser and then thought to yourself, "what was I thinking", oh, I always do. And so because of this my husband thinks I have a soft heart for the unloved furniture that most people would either throw in the dumpster or burn, thus, the unloved furniture syndrome. As soon as I loaded this piece in my SUV, it started to fall apart, really that fast. But I loved the hardware on it and. I'm a sucker for great hardware. I really do have a soft spot for the unloved furniture. You know, it's kind of a challenge.
So my husband made a whole new drawer and we only used the old front of it because the rest was so warped, broken, and just falling apart. Now, let me tell you how we referred to this piece of furniture. POC, Piece of Crap. I didn't give it that name, but Doug did as soon as he saw it, and so the name stuck until we were done.
I knew I wanted to paint it a color similar to ASCP Duck Egg Blue, so I went over to Altard's blog and Mandi has compared Behr and Sherwin Williams paints to Annie's paint colors. She has saved us all so much work, thanks Mandi. This is S.W. Halcyon Green and is beautiful. I lightly distressed and glazed with Valspar glaze.
The old mirror was missing so, hubby replicated the skirt on the bottm of the dresser for a accent trim to take the mirror's place. It took away the emptiness on the top and made it look more complete
This one is one of my favorite redo's of all time, I don't know why, but I sure like how it turned out. The dresser is completely functional now and will brighten any one's home.
