Art Deco Dresser Make Over Upcycling Furniture
I always look for unique looking furniture (mostly mid century modern furniture) when I hunt for new pieces! I knew I liked the "bones" of this dresser but I was a bit hesitant at first. Then decided to just go for it and I didn't regret it! Check out the transformation ! And see my other pieces on Instagram @andreapalmai
Here is how it looked before! Cool lines but boring!
Once I decided on the color and design, I started filling the missing veneers with wood filler. Gave it a light sanding with 100 grit sandpaper then it was time to paint!
For this I used gold spray paint.
Then painted the remaining parts black with a foam roller!
This already looked cool but I had bigger plans for this bad boy!
I used some skinny painter's tape to create my design. I did not measure anything because who has time for that? But if you don't feel confident use a measuring tape. Its easier than fixing it later.
I just googled "art deco design" and searched for pictures that i liked, would work best with the dresser and were not too complicated. After removing the tape, I fixed my lines and made sure they were sharp!
This is the finished product! It was totally worth it! It's classy and gives me some serious Great Gatsby vibes!
