Re-Imagined Dresser


Here is a piece I just finished for a client.   We have been working our way through the house.  She just moved in not too long ago so, she is starting from scratch.  The base color is a super, super light grey (almost white) with a slightly darker (not by much) grey striped accent.  It needed not to be too strong of a piece in the room...but, painting it plain white was just too dull.   Add in a smidge of distressing and you have a winner.  Here is what the dresser originally looked like.



Not awful right?  But definitely nothing special or even remotely unique.

 

Ahhhh, much better. Right?

So pretty! I'm always scared about painting IKEA stuff because I'm afraid the paint won't take, but this looks amazing!

Camila-

I know, me too. But, luckily, this wasn't from IKEA. It's actually solid wood so it was a perfect option to paint! I try and stay away from IKEA when doing pieces for clients. ( = Just for that reason.

Erin-

Nope. It's from gothic cabinet. But, I can totally see how you could mistake it. They look super similar. ( ;
