Drab to FAB Beachy Dresser Makeover.


fixer upper diy dresser do it yourself shabby chic fun funky
 Good Day my Beauties! I decided to mix things up today
and show you a furniture makeover instead of a craft.
I was so excited about the latest transformation that I just couldn't wait to share.
I bought this DRAB looking dresser because it was in such good shape..
NOT visually but the drawers worked great and it was in good functional condition.
The  OUTWARD  condition of it on the other hand, left lots to be desired. :)

I once again had to haul the piece into my kitchen because the weather is just not cooperating
for painting..(we are suppose to hit high 40's today so we have our fingers and our toes crossed)
I quickly just whipped up a custom blue for the base. I am as usual
just JONESING for SPRING...I can't stand to look at WHITE...I am surrounded 
by it and its driving me mad... :)  

I painted a couple coats on the base and got started on the drawers.


I decided for the drawers I wanted a beachy green. So I custom mixed up a fun green color
and did a wash of it over the blue on the drawer fronts. 
I love the little bit of accent that it gives to the drawers.

For the hardware I decided to simplify. I loved the vintage hardware it had with the pineapples 
that went with the whole beachy theme. So I just spray painted them white to add a POP
to the drawers.
The whole dresser was waxed and distressed and buffed
and I love the vintage beachy feel that it was transformed into.

I can hardly believe the difference.
I hope you all enjoyed the latest makeover 
and I am HOPING that SPRING will soon be here!
Until next time...Go make someones day BEAUTIFUL!
Hugs,
Karin
