Some pieces just stand out! I’m not normally a fan of this style, but I do like it and this gem is just gorgeous!

I’m afraid I forgot to get a proper before picture, but this is basically what it looked like before.

I definitely kept the hardware on the bottom three drawers, they just needed a little attention!

it took some time to sand it completely, but I’m really pleased how it turned out!

I wanted this piece to have an industrial look,yet somewhat feminine. I chose to use just the bottom part of this stencil, then a different stencil for the top.

I used only the bottom half of this wine stencil, which was a perfect amount for this area.

I used a latex cream paint from magnolia for all of the stencil work

I bought this amazing hardware on Amazon, perfect for an industrial look! I found the vintage typewriter font on the internet and printed it on a light gray card stock

The drawers are lined with a hessian look wallpaper, measured, then cut to fit. I used a spray adhesive to keep them in place.

Once all of the stencils were on, I covered the whole piece with johnson’s wax to seal. I left it over night to dry, then buffed it up for a smooth finish .

I absolutely love everything about it now! I gave the original hardware a fresh new look by spraying them gold, then rubbed them over with a matt black paint to try and match them to the new hardware.

The wood tones are so beautiful! I’m so glad I never painted this beauty! I love the natural look and all of its new details!

Now it has a fresh new look!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

    The pads demonstrate that an orbital sander was used. Did you use both?
