Lingerie Chest Makeover

This old lingerie chest has been sitting in my house for years now and I finally got around to giving it some love!


I'm not sure quite how old it is, but it was given to us by my husband's grandfather.


I would have done it a long time ago if I had thought about how quick this was!


All it took was some new hardware and a bit of chalk paint.

Here is what the dresser looked like before.

STEP 1 - SAND CHEST


The first thing I did was give it a good sanding around the areas that needed it. The bottom was very warped, but it didn't need much more sanding than that.

STEP 2 - REMOVE DRAWERS & HARDWARE

Once I had sanded, I removed all the drawers and laid the lingerie chest on the ground.


Next, I used a screwdriver to remove all of the hardware.

STEP 3 - PAINT

I went with Annie Sloan Aged Grey Chalk Paint.


I used a small roller along with a brush to get in the crevices.


I waited roughly an hour for it to dry and then gave it a second coat.

STEP 4 - ADD NEW HARDWARE

Finally, I added the new hardware I purchased. Then put the drawers back in.

I'm very happy with the way it turned out! Now I just have to decide where to put it!

What do you think about how it turned out?
