Old Dresser Hutch gets a makeover.
First I removed the mirrior, wooden panel, all hardware, and drawers. Since I used chalk paint, I didn't need to do any prepping or sanding. I gave it a good wipe down to remove any dirt.
I found this dresser hutch on my local sales app. for $80. I knew instantly what I wanted to do.
So then I painted away. It took about 3 coats of white chalk paint by Wavely. I don't know about you but painting is so therapeutic for me. Having 4 kiddos, I sure need something to relax me.
Once paint was dried, I then distressed all corners and in between the cracks and sealed it with clear wax from Waverly. I really love that rustic vintage farmhouse look and it was turning out just as I imagined.
All done. I replaced all hardware and chalked painted the wood panel behind the mirrior black. I also left 2 drawers out and made them into shelves. It definitely turned out better than I thought it would be. I debated wether to keep the piece for myself but I decided to resell. I paid $80 and resold for $275. Not to bad being that I had almost all my supplies on hand already. Now on to my next project.

    Came out beautiful. Is it the angle of the picture or is the left drawer handle crooked ?

    I love it too. You had a great vision for this piece. I love looking at all these furniture transformations on this site, which in turn give me some great ideas on how to refinish my own projects.
