Updated Dresser

Well I finally made up my mind on a paint color for this old dresser...

I used these photos as a jumping off point. I love the combination of gray and gold, it's so dramatic!

Ta da!

I should probably go back in and add another coat of paint to finish off the top edges of the drawers. Oops!

I lined the lower drawers with some fun contact paper. For the upper two drawers I cut out some foam core board and wrapped it with some taupe suede fabric. I hot-glued it to the backside and placed the boards inside the drawers. I now have a wonderful place to store my jewelry - hooray no more tangled necklaces! The fabric works really well to keep everything in place, I've even tried slamming the drawers and everthing stays put.

So there you have it! Now if only I could finish up my office chair...


  1. I love how the dresser turned out and your inspiration.


  2. That is beautiful! It turned out perfectly. I don't have many "grays" in my house, but I absolutely love them.

  3. Great transformation...love your revived dresser, Francine

  4. What color is the paint?? And where did you get the knobs!? Details, sister, details!!! )

  5. Love it! It looks sooo fantastic!! :)

  6. super cute!! Love the color! And the bronze knobs. Nice touch.

  7. Great color choice! I love the knobs!

  8. Love it! ditto what Susan said.. we need details!

  9. The paint is actually a gray spray paint - I tried finding a shade of gray interior paint but they were out of the grays I liked and were unable to color match so I didn't have much of a choice. I'll have to get back to you ladies on the brand/color of the spray paint. For the knobs, I simply removed the old wooden knobs and painted them with an antique gold acrylic paint and vuah-lah!

  10. I am letting everyone know that I have moved my blog to my new site www.itssoverycheri.com
