Yeah if I could have saved the original finish, I would have. But sadly, it was beyond hope. Which is why I didn’t feel bad doing what I could to ensure it had a second life.
The new color plus the addition of the gold hardware makes my heart swoon! Love!!!
That blue tho Which paint is that?
It turned out so great! The blue and gold really suit the style of the piece, too. It’s got a nautical vibe with the hardware style and the rope moulding.
I’m with you. Not all wood is beautiful. And everyone has different taste. If this had been some rare antique that would make the Keno brothers swoon on Antique Roadshow that would be a different thing altogether. The handyman who was helping us with a few projects a few years ago was quietly appalled that I was painting the outside of our front door - but it was not pretty wood and it had an insurmountable amount of yellowed varnish on it.
Just gorgeous! Great save!
Beautiful! I love the colour, it’s very stylish.
This is gorgeous!
It’s Mediterranean (blue teal), Heirloom Traditions All-In-One Paint I had such a good experience with it on my IKEA repainted dresser that I just used the same product! I already knew I liked the color and over a year later, the paint has held up perfectly on my IKEA piece so why not!
Beautiful re-do of a great piece!
HEY-OH! Your fabulous craft is one of this week’s Featured Projects! Congratulations!
I love everything about this
So beautiful! You did a great job restoring it!
Aw, yay! My little dumpster dresser does good!
This is gorgeous. I know it’s a lot of work to refinish furniture but this turned out so beautifully that it was totally worth it.
It looks awesome! I love what you did with it.
Our apartment has a free section where people put stuff that’s not garbage but that they just don’t want anymore either. We’ve gotten some good stuff from there!
I love the color, especially with the gold. I think it looks better than plain wood.
What a wonderful find and a glamorous new look!
What a gorgeous upcycle! I love the accent you added to the wood too!
Wowowowowow!!! I lo9ve the colors you picked!!
You saved it from the landfill - paint whatever you like!
The finished piece is stunning - and you nailed it with that color! It will be in your home for a long time.
