Out with the Old
(.. & in with the New)
Ok.. So I am officially not only a lover of decorating, but also a lover of changing up old (but beautiful) furniture and giving it a modern spin. The two really tie in together because the power of decorating is kicked up several notches once you’ve got your hands on a unique piece!
Let’s skip ahead and show you the finished product, glammed up using my handy dandy Instagram app:
Unfortunately, I did not get a full shot of the ‘before’ on this older pine dresser but I did get an awkward side shot!
Here it is:
This one shows the drawers of the ‘before’:
Ok, so I went to work on this old piece in order to restore some of the beauty in its elements. It started out as a relatively simple piece. Not ornate and without many details. Because of this, I decided to bring out some excitement by painting it two different colors.
I love the softness of the gray outline combined with the punch of the darker drawers. Something about it just says ‘WOW’.
A little distressing.. and ta da. I may actually go back and a add a little distress to the top and sides. It can only add to its beauty.
And finally, the shot that really captures the entirety of my old pine dresser, redone!
