Oriental Silk Dresser Makeover

Remember this freebie I posted about? Well, she’s looking hot! Better than ever! Savannah and I gave her a makeover and it looks FAB if I do say so myself!
Here’s the Before to refresh your memory…
and AFTER! I LOVE it in white!
 I LOVE the keyhole! The detail is gorgeous!
 Lots of storage!
We used Behr’s Oriental Silk (one of our absolute favorites) and sprayed the hardware with Rustoleum’s Hammered Grey. The whole thing got a good couple coats of Minwax’s Polyacrylic.
All 9, yes NINE drawers are dovetail drawers and slide PERFECTLY! This is a super heavy, SUPER sturdy piece!
What do you think??

    LOVE! Great job girls! I love the black distressing. Did you paint it black first? Or glaze it?

    Do you sand the furniture first? I am curious the steps you take to paint the furniture. It looks awesome!!

    Too funny! I swear I just found that exact dresser lol. I’m going the complete opposite on mine and doing it a Jacobean stain with fabric panels in the drawer panels. I hope it turns out as good as yours!
