Just a couple of weeks ago I fixed this old bench using wood putty and Dark Walnut stain. Of the three benches my grandparents made that I have this one had taken the biggest beating. But, with just a little elbow grease I had her looking almost like new again. After that I made a no-sew cushion for it complete with tufting and buttons! Check out the post all about it here.Stencil Revolution makes really neat and high quality stencils and they were kind enough to offer me two! My first post using one of their stencils was my Mother’s Day sign using their Greatest Mom in all the Land stencil. The other one I chose was this Country Fresh Produce stencil.
Check out the latest MAKEOVER. A kid ravaged dresser turned Schoolhouse style dresser.
This dresser had seen better days, but after a little paint and some elbow grease I was able to bring it back to its BEAUTIFUL glory!
Just because it's a dresser doesn't mean it has to go in the bedroom. I took two small dressers and turned them into a unique focal point (which included a vinyl tree on the wall) with some paint and cut out letters. And of course a quote I loved. Dec 2015 UPDATE: I've had several ask about the tree. I got it on eBay at the time but you can find several stores on Amazon that carry it though its a bit pricer. http://amzn.to/1SgQGSh
I love a good IKEA hack project and this one turned out just as good as I had imagined it in my head! I started with a plain IKEA Tarva Dresser and then went to work transforming it into a beautiful art decor inspired metallic gold honeycomb dresser and I love how it turned out!
My husband and I love to repurpose old furniture, making it new again. We had this dresser in storage and I just couldn't decide on how I wanted to finish it. I loved the top drawer, which looks like it is several little drawers. I had seen some dressers with little drawers all painted different colors and thought about doing the drawer in that style. I finally decided I needed a coffee bar! Once that decision was made, I knew. I love how it turned out and love all the storage, freeing up precious counter space in my kitchen.
I’m sure by now everyone has seen a dresser turned into a kitchen island—I’ve been seeing them online for a while and have been wanting to do one myself, but just haven’t found the perfect old dresser. Until now. I went into my local thrift store recently and found the perfect little diamond in the rough—I’m so happy with how it came out! We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page. BEFORE: Here is a shot of the dresser when I first brought it home. I love the etched detail in the drawers, which is a big reason I decided to keep at least one of them for my finished island.
An old dresser is updated with paint and sanding. The final result is a look that is inspired by the Balayage hair coloring - a gradual change in color! This small dresser is beautiful, with some engraved detailing and small casters on the bottom. But it was left in the corner, un-used and ignored. Now it is a centerpiece, ready to grab our attention, and help store things in our home.
Wanna know what a bunch of drill holes can do for an ugly old dresser?Yeah, didn't think so. Though give me a chance to explain - I think you're going to be pleasantly surprised!Anyone can do this at home and the results are truly special.I've summarised this tutorial slightly for Home Talk. You can find the full how-to here on my blog.
I am quite partial to vintage dressers with pretty curved drawers and sweet details. When I saw this dresser at my local thrift shop, it had clearly seen better days, but the lovely vintage details were still there. The top looked as though someone previously had started to refinish it, but gave up. I decided to take over where the previous owner had left off.
Well, that's the way it started... In the last year we renovated our house and there are too many things that are still waiting in our backyard to be reused (good luck with that.. ).
