I’m amazed sometimes how the simplest projects can turn out so beautiful.
On my Furniture Inspiration Board I have a number of furniture makeovers that pair white paint with the furniture’s original wood finish.
I shared some of these gorgeous makeovers on Perfect Pairs, A Beautiful Wood Finish and A Complimentary Paint. You might want to check them out!
Last week at My Favorite Junk Shop I found a vintage oak dresser that’s perfect for this look.
Finally, I’ve been looking for a while.
Here she is before. Well almost before.
The mirror was missing, so the Junktion Technical Specialist cut a piece of wood to replace the mirror.
The JTS tends to do a lot of his work when I’m not around so I only have the after picture with the replacement wood.
This really is a simple project.
I used Miss Mustard Seed’s Hemp Oil on the oak drawers and I painted the casing with Reclaim Paint in off-white.
The hardware got a spray paint makeover!
I had to tear myself away from the electric sander because I wanted just the slightest bit of distressing on the painted areas.
I used 100 grit sandpaper by hand…… very, very lightly
I made a chalkboard as a replacement for the mirror.
Rust-Oleum brush on chalkboard paint is my go-to for chalkboard paint.
I wasn’t sure if it would look better with the mirror frame painted white or left as is.
I think I like it best like this.
The original oak finish of the mirror frame ties in with the drawers rather nicely.
