Steps to Restoring Painting Old Furniture Trash to Treasure

Painted wood dresser to stylish white
 This is a roadside furniture pick-up. I enjoyed the makeover and am very pleased with how it turned out. I think not only it looks better, but it brighten up the area that it sits in. I am now very proud to see because it has been touched with my LOVE. A lot of care and attention went into this buffet and it was also my companion for days.  For the painting steps see Paint Kitchen Oak Cabinet White. And for the hardware cleaning homemade recipe check my post Hardware Cleaning Recipe Brass or Metal.

    1. There are a few things about this buffet that I like, the hardware and the frames. It was a lot of fun to restore this piece. It looks "regal" as Dus would say.

    1. While it is a nice piece of furniture, I am only using it as display, and have not utilize the drawers, or cabinets. It look good in our entry way. :-)

  5. You are really good! I have some cabinets staring at me right now that I need to refinish! I am making it my project at the end of May. I hope they come out half as nice as these.

  8. Wow, it looks so lovely before and after. But i think i prefer the look of the old one, it is more natural for me. I love to do that kind of thing to, however my thumb already got operation for repetitive stress injury (RSI), so it is kind of a little disabled. So i don't venture in too much work for it now.

  11. A roadside find?? You scored, for sure! Loved all the tips and the link backs (which I did). So helpful for those of us thinking about painting large pieces of furniture. Or, as in my case, kitchen cabinets. I'm still in the "I think I might paint them" stage. I hang on that step for quite some time.. LOL! Thanks again for sharing!!

  18. I love this and would like to paint my dresser the same! I know white was the base colour, but what was the high light colour? Also did you use semi-gloss? Thanks!

    1. Hi anonymous, sorry I took so long to answer your question. Hopefully, you will swing back and see, since I don't know who you are I couldn't send a direct message.
      Anyhow, the white is not really a white for it is called "frost" by Kelly Moore, our house is painted this color too, and it is fabulous indoors and outdoors. The darker color is "malibu beige" which is another Kelly Moore paint. They both are eggshell, not completely flat and not glossy either. The sheen that you are seeing is the gloss from my wax job - which gave the dresser a soft shine, and not a paint shine. Thanks for stopping in.
