It’s that time of the week! Time to show off the fabulous furniture makeovers you have been working on this past week. I have a Swedish inspired dresser to share with you today. I bought this beautiful solid mahogany dresser off my buddy Craig for $30. (Pardon its post sanding, wiped down appearance!)
It had loads of wear and tear, scratches, stickers, but overall functioned beautifully and was solid and had nice details. I decided to paint it gray and I used my Benjamin Moore Aura paint/primer in one in Platinum Gray. Because I had to sand some spots down further to rid it if scratches, there was quite a bit of bleeding on the drawers. I decided to add a coat of Kilz to the drawers. And then what do you kow… I liked the look of the gray body with white drawers! So I ended up painting the drawers with a mistint white from Benjamin Moore that is actually called Diamond White. Once it was all painted, I distressed all the edges, and details and gave it all a wash of Dune Gray stain by cabot- it’s more of a sandy gray. The original hardware was fabulous, so it went right back on. And here is the final product!
