Fall DIY | Dresser Makeover
My client contacted me asking me to recreate a dresser from a year ago I had done for someone. Challenge accepted! I hadn’t done a white and wood combo in awhile, and it’s such a satisfying one. So browsing through Facebook marketplace I found this gem. Although I could tell it was solid wood, I was not expecting the wood to be THAT beautiful 😍 check it out!
also , check out my Instagram for diy TikTok / Reels tutorials !
Solid wood, great bones! But those handles needed some work. It all needed a makeover. But you an see that beauty ?! Right?! 😉
Personally, I keep all my hardware, but I was getting all new stuff for this piece.
These old yellowing drawer stain needed to go!!
It was time for a happy dance when I saw that GORGEOUS wood grain underneath 🖤
Just needed a scuff up, and shinny coating taken down.
Sanding was done and I used varasol to wipe down all the sand dust off.
I put some wood filler on the bottom legs to fill some chips. Than sanded that down.
Time to prime - I always and forever will use ZINSSER SHELLAC BASED primer.
I was so sad my airbuds (Bluetooth headphones) died 😫
Staining the drawers I used a minwax royal walnut.
I did 3 coats of behrs antique white adding bb frosch transforming powder with the paint, over top the 3 coats of primer.
Love that off white!
I bought these hardware pieces from amazon! I live how adorable and adorable and good quality most are.
I actually DIY’d these black vases ;) go check out them in another post!

Love it. Simple and beautiful .
Lovely. How far did you take the sanding down on the parts that you were going to paint. All the way to bare wood, or leave some stain color? Also do you sand with finer sandpaper as well to get VERY smooth serface after painting? Thanks
What type of roller do you use?
It’s beautiful! My question, what is “transforming additive”?
