I recently purchased a dresser with mirror. It is quite a large piece and was in great shape, just needed a little update.
I've started using Dixie Belle Paint and love their products so far. My new go to color in white is Drop Cloth. It is not a bright white and looks great. This dresser was the usual brown furniture color (didn't take before picture) but the after is fabulous I think.
I left the drawers and tops original and just painted the frame and mirror.
The wood was a little lighter in color so I just did one coat of a darker stain to it. The finish on it was pretty worn so the stain did stick and darken the wood slightly. Poly was added to the tops.
I updated the hardware which came from Hobby Lobby. They were painted Drop Cloth also.
The edges were slightly distressed and the painted areas was sealed with Dixie Belle Clear Coat.
I liked the markings in the wood and adding the darker stain highlighted them.
The top piece has additional storage with three drawers and a big mirror. It is a separate piece and can be removed for easy moving.
I really like mixing painted areas and keeping tops original. The drawer fronts in original wood give this piece a nice contrast.
This piece is now available in my booth at The Coop Antiques.
Thanks for stopping by,
