{Furniture Makeover} The Big Reveal

Finally, we come to the end of our journey and I get to share with you the BIG REVEAL of the project we have worked on over the last few weeks. Before we open the curtains to the finished piece lets have a look back at where we started.

Remember how nasty the wood top looked….you won’t believe the after!

Colour Saturated Life | Before

The dresser had a great shape and gorgeous wood veneer but had seen better days, it was time to give her a new life. After making a few repairs, stripping, staining and bringing the wood back to life, painting a unique Herringbone Pattern and finally distressing and waxing comes the time to add new hardware. One of my favourite parts of doing Furniture Makeovers is choosing new hardware…..it’s like adding jewellery to an outfit, it’s the perfect finishing touch to bring the whole look together. The hardware I chose for this piece are Decagon Fluted Clear Glass Knobs from D Lawless Hardware they give just enough bling to the dresser without overwhelming it and gives it the final touch to make this a special piece of furniture. And, without further ado….here she is!

Thank you again for following along with me on this series, it has been so much fun taking you behind the scenes on a furniture transformation. Now you can see how much work goes into one of my furniture projects and even though it can be exhausting at times, when it comes to styling and photographing the final result it makes every moment leading up to this worth all the blood (I am a clutz), sweat and tears (I am known to get emotional at times)!
