When I found this dresser I was not very sure what to do with it, but I knew I loved it. I loved the lines of this piece when I found it online so I decided to buy it instantly. I knew how much potential it had, but was looking for a bit more personality. I certainly wasn’t going for a subtle makeover!
I’ve been wanting to use black chalk paint for a while, but could not find the right piece of furniture to stand up to the challenge. Until now!
I started sanding down the piece and striping the veneer from the doors, sides and top cover. Once I reached the wood I started preparing for the paint.
For the wow factor I went with faux gold leaf and I feel that it truly makes a statement, to have a great dresser story. The black chalk paint really contrasts with the gold texture. After two coats I got the look I wanted for this piece. The gold deconstructed pattern is made out of faux gold foil. I applied the faux gold leaf per instructions in a deconstructed pattern. All the metal accessories are new and so are the wood knobs that I painted black.
It has a modern, eclectic style. I may have exaggerated a bit with the styling, but this piece is worth it. I am so happy with the end result!
With a past behind that we will never know, this dresser story has a brand new future.
