I can't even lie and say that I bought this painted like this. As Embarrassing as it is to admit it, I painted it years ago, hated how it turned out, and sent it down to the dungeon (My basement) because it was so hideous!
I knew that someday I would fix it, and today was that day!
( dresser was purchased at the DI for $4.00)
First off I took out the drawers.( *I save all drawers for later project possibilities!)
Then, I hammered the CRAP out of the poor thing, and hollowed out the middle.
Next, I brought out my Kirby Vacuum ( shout out to the parental unit!) for some sanding!
Off to my pile of wood in the garage for some inspiration!
Voila.... Left over bead board!
I cut the Bead Board down to the size of the bottom, back, and sides of the inside of the dresser. Then, I painted it with Turquoise Toll Paint (My all time favorite color, Found in the craft section of Walmart. ), & added Dark Walnut Stain in the cracks, and along the edges.
Next, I painted the dresser Antique White & nailed the bead board in place.
This is how it turned out!
( I also stained the antique white dresser)
I wanted something to go on top of my dresser, so I purchased this frame for .50 cents at the DI.
I painted the frame the same Turquoise, and the Bead Board the same Antique White, and stained both.
Then, I nailed the bead board to the picture frame, and added some old hardware to the sides to create a tray!
Isn't it FABULOUS?
( Antique Picture Frame and Artichoke Candle stick accent also found at the DI for .50 cents a piece!)
For now it's in my front room, but I think I might move it to one of the bathrooms, and add some white towels, bath salts, & coral accents!
*I hope you think twice about getting rid of those Hideous projects that don't turn out the first time!
