Old Dresser Upcycle - Hunter Green + Brass
Here's how we transformed our old shabby chic dresser.
Here's what our dresser looked like before. It's actually pretty cute like this however I just really wanted something fresh and new. I was looking to a buy a dresser but since this one was in perfect working condition I decided to give it a makeover.
So this was the freakiest part of all. I had the hardest time deciding whether I should cut the bottom off or not. I finally decided to just go for it because, I wanted to give it a modern look. The bottom of the dresser was super cute however if I were to add metal legs to the bottom I had to pick one or the other.
We decided to use some legs off an old rusty coffee table.
My hubby shortened them and I spray painted them a brass color.
He also made me some custom hardware for the dresser.
To paint the dresser I made some chalk paint using plaster of paris and gave the dresser three coats of paint.
We than attached the metal legs and handles and here's how it looks complete! :D I'm in love with this color!
And these handles turned out amazing! The dresser definitely looks way more modern. I'm in love!
Thank you for tuning in. I hope you enjoyed our transformation! You can check it out in more depth on my blog here - https://www.lilyardor.com/diy-dresser-makeover/
