Before & After: Paint Transforms a Vintage Dresser

Before & After: Paint Transforms a Vintage Dresser

Though painted furniture isn't everyone's cup of tea, it is makeovers like this that demonstrate why this technique is so popular. This yard sale find with fabulous curves was transformed with a little elbow grease, some leftover paint, and a mix of old and new hardware.

We have written about Sarah's magic touch wth paint before (Sarah's Delightful Dresser Redo); now we're starting to wonder how she has so much luck finding dressers with such appealing lines. From the curvy front legs to the keyholes in the drawers, this piece just cries out for attention. The white paint and slight distressing make all the difference to this dresser, which looks fabulous in its new home.

Oh, and that tufted headboard you see in the mirror? Sarah and her sister made that too! For more pictures of the dresser transformation and for other great projects, check out Sarah's blog Hart's Desire.
