Dresser Makeover

A few weeks ago, I worked on a dresser makeover for one of Erika Ward's clients. This piece was big, solid, and heavy, but had definitely seen better days. The color was not right for the new look they were doing in the room, so I painted it. I painted it a creamy off white, then did some light glazing on it. With the addition of new hardware, it looked completely different!

Check her out:

This was the picture I took in the studio, to send to Erika. They added the hardware afterwards! 

The room was featured in The Stacks loft Christmas tour of homes here in Cabbagetown. Pretty cool! Thank you, Erika, for having me paint this piece - I'm glad it fit right in!

    I am so happy to see this. I have this exact dresser/bedroom set and have been wanting to paint it white. What color did you use? Thanks, Crystal
