Teal Dresser Upcycle - Vintage Makeover

This dresser was a steal! I love the beauty of this vintage dresser with all its moldings! Although when I got it, it was far from its prime. But nothing a little sanding and tsp and paint can’t fix!

I knew the top piece needed to go, I think originally it was used for jewelry.



I had a friend sand this for me, and he did an amazing job! A lot of hand sanding but it made my job a lot easier.


Primed this beauty with Zinsser shellac based primer which, if you have been following be for a while you know this is my go to! I knew this one would be a bleeder.



I use country chic paint ALOT. I love the coverage and durability! This color is wanderess by country chic paint. Use my code: flopornot for 10% off your first order! This upcycled dresser took three coats of this paint.

I loved these original hardware, so I used varathanes antique bronze spray paint in a can and updated these handles.



Ill say this time and time again. Any Dresser can be upcycled and given a makeover! don't waste what you have, try to find its true potential and beuaty!
