The Sage Dresser - Before & After

Before This little dresser was kindly donated to us by someone who follows are blog and thought that we may want it. Thank you to Leslie for being so kind and thinking of us. When I say we have met many new friends this is just one example!!!


A few months back I won a




paint giveaway over at




The amazing thing is number one that I won because I never win anything and two that we picked an awesome paint color! Paint colors can be super hard to pick but this one was right on!


After


This color is a very rich grey green. We have used the a similar Restoration Hardware color but I have to admit this looks much richer. It has a beautiful tone and sits nicely against white. The cute little bun feet gives is some fun character. You can see the quality of the color when you compare it against the white baseboard and white door in the background. I made this hat for our little one for her second birthday. I had it neatly stored under her bed but it has found its way out again and I have seen it on her head on several occassions recently.These are a few old hat boxes that were originally painted in the 1990s navy blues and deep red. We spray painted these white and I threw a few strips of scrap paper on each side to give it more dimensions and bring out the colors in our little one's room. We added the new oil rubbed bronze hardware which looks beautiful on everything. It just has such a nice crisp clean look. This sweet little thing is available to be purchased. If you are interested just email me at frostedgardner@live.com.

61" Wide . 35.5" Tall . 19.5" Deep

We have another french dresser that will be completed today and available to purchase as well. Have a wonderful Thursday!

I love it! I have this exact dresser and replaced all of the hardware several years ago, but I am loving the painted look.

That is a beautiful dresser. I landed in a fine furnishing shop this week and saw a similar piece retailing for over $2,000. You should be proud!

Melanie - free dresser + free paint = fabulous rehab. Good luck on the sale, somebody will love it. Your choice for hardware is on point with the updated paint, very well done.
