Gray and Gold Distressed HoneyComb Stencilled Dresser Makeover

beat up free dresser turned gray and gold honeycomb stencilled beauty bohochic home decor makeover before and after

Welcome back my BEAUTIES! 
Sorry I have been absent so far this week. 
Soccer season has started and that means lots of running around.
Not to mention the stress of try outs and waiting to see if my daughter would be making the team..
HAPPILY she made the Varsity team, and we basically started out of the GATE with double scrimmages on Saturdays and a game under our belt already! 
I'm not even playing and I am TIRED!!
Anywhoo...what I did manage to work on was this awesome free dresser that a sweet friend of mine gave me.
The same friend that gave me this Beautiful Mid Century Mod dresser  that I made over!
They have been going through a lot also so if you have any good thoughts you could send their way I know they would appreciate it!
My friend is pretty awesome as well as her whole family, and when they had some furniture to unload they knew who would take it off their hands! :)
I love furniture donations!!! :)

To get the piece started I gave it a good sanding and wipe down and then chose 
to cover the whole piece with.

It was looking better already.
Now you know I can't leave a plain ole boxy dresser alone.
I wasn't sure what I wanted to do and then I remembered I had this awesome stencil!
I grabbed some gold paint and my brush and got to work.

The dresser had some imperfections in it so I didn't want my gold paint to look to perfect or even. I stencilled on all the drawer fronts and then lightly sanded over it to give it a bit of a distressed feel. 
Once it was dry I but the original hardware that I spray painted gold back onto the dresser.

And this is how it turned out.
I love the gray and gold color combination.
Its feels a bit classy, a bit bohemian, and mostly, FUN!

Well that's it for this makeover!
I hope you liked the transformation.
I am going to try to squeeze in one more makeover before next weekend since we will be leaving for a fun spring break as a family.
We are needing the down time of no schedules and no ALARM clocks for a week!
Until next time,
I hope you have a BEAUTIFUL day!
