Classic Campaign dresser makeover BEFORE using general finishes milk paint in driftwood
Welcome back my Beauties.
I am back with another makeover.
I am happy to say that this one just sold so I figured I should 
write it up before I forgot about it.
I picked up this classic style Campaign dresser at Goodwill 
for a great price and couldn't say no.
It was a beast and just needed a little love.

From the front it looks great but the sides and the top had big scratches and missing stain. 
I decided since the drawer fronts were in great condition I would keep those "as is" and just work on the base of the dresser.
I took out all the drawers and sanded down the base.
I wiped it all down and got to work.

The hardware also needed some TLC.
It had these weird blotches where the finish had worn off so I decided to remove those as well and fix them up.

I gently removed the corner brackets and the hardware and scrubbed them down. Then I gave a quick shot of some Rustoleum Metallic gold spray paint

While the hardware was drying I could get to work on the base of the dresser.
I decided to go with General Finishes Driftwood Milk paint since it played off the gold brown of the drawer fronts.
I gave it two coats. 
While it was drying I put the dried hardware back on the drawers.
Once the whole thing was dry, I could put the corner brackets back on as well.

I love these kinds of pieces that don't need a ton of work to give them a fresh new update.


I am also happy to know that it's enjoying its new life in someone's home.

That's all for me, for now.
I hope you enjoyed this makeover!
