Masculine Dresser Makeover


My son was 7 when we bought this dresser. And over the last 11 years he's used this dresser to it's max. It was a great dresser but it's pulls were breaking and a glide or two needed repaired. I decided to give him a taller dresser with more room and give this one a makeover!!

    Okay so I have a very similar dresser and want to paint ours. How exactly did you paint this and with what?

      Looks like stain only.

    • This is painted out with American Paint Company Freedom Road. It’s a great deep charcoal grey. I used American Paint Company Born on the 4th for the harlequin pattern and then finished it out with The Furniture Connoisseur Antique Walnut Wax. - Lori

    Did you use only two colors? One for the dresser and the other girls the stencil?

    Did you sand it first to stop the varnish bleeding through?
