I'm excited to show off this fun before & after makeover project!
We found this older dresser at a thrift store a month or so ago. It's an older piece that most certainly had seen better days.
Luckily we could see beyond its dirt, grime and out-of-date style.
Here is the before picture:
We decided to paint it Old White and add two fun red stripes to give it a pop of color. I distressed the entire thing which, if you ask me, adds some fun character. As for the top, I left it unpainted, however, to make it look a bit more aged I sanded it down and painted a watery white wash mixture on top, wiping off the extras. I love how the paint gets inside all of the groves and blemishes, really making it look worn. I then topped her off with some dark wax, followed by some clear wax . . . and called it a day.
I'm a sucker for all things white and red - so I really love how this turned out!
