Custom Green Dresser Makeover



Good Morning my Beauties. Sorry I left you hanging this week, but as you can
imagine this is our busy season. People pretty much bought out my booth last week, so I have spent the last week playing "catch up"...I am NOT complaining...Its a great problem to have; but
it means I have not had a ton of time to do posts.
This was one of the projects I did manage to get done last week.
I finally got to get some pictures before it was RUSHED off to the booth.

I had bought this dresser at goodwill. It had 4 of the original Glass threaded knobs in it.
Pretty expensive to replace for what people will pay here for furniture. So I had decided at this point I was going to have to fill those GIANT threaded holes.

Also as you can see here....I had to replace a foot that was missing off the back.
I believe this piece was made by "Sellers" furniture but not sure.
Once I got all the boring stuff done like filling holes and fixing feet, I was able to get onto the fun stuff.

I sanded the top of this dresser since there was pretty much nothing left of a finish anyway.
I stained it a nice dark walnut.
For the base I mixed up a custom Green using 3 different CECE Caldwell's paints.
Brushed it on, waxed it and distressed it.

Here she is in all her glory.

From Drab to Fab in just a few steps.
I hope you all have a BEAUTIFUL day...I will be!

Where is the button on my keyboard that I hit that just says...."another beautiful transformation". I feel like a broken record.

Very pretty color. Love the knobs, where did you get those? Kinda different which is what I love.
It's very expensive here, you'd make a mint. Only problem when you buy something at thrift stores they're also pretty high for what they're selling and the condition of item.
We live west of Grand Junction, CO.
When do you get a chance to breathe or do fun things? You're always so busy. Happy days

How delightful! Love the unique color and adore the clock-face knobs! I didn't see if you mentioned where you got them or if you created them yourself-
Cheers!
