Mid-Century Modern Dresser “Patchwork” Makeover

Sarah from Funcycled planned to refinish a mid-century modern dresser and wanted to do something outside-the-box. She came across West Elm’s patchwork dresser and new it would be the perfect look for her dresser. Sarah and her husband got to work sanding the dresser, painting the box white, and then staining the drawers in a variety of finishes. I love the contrast of the crisp white paint and stain. This is such a fun, statement-making piece!

DIY Dresser with Eclectic Stained Finish

I had so much fun seeing the Shanty Sisters last week at Haven, and, let me tell you, these girls have it all! They are as sweet as can be, fun, gorgeous, and crazy talented. Just check out this dresser that Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic built for her BFF’s baby nursery following plans from Ana White. This is a dresser that will definitely grow with the little fellow until he’s a teenager. He could even tote it off to college with him, and it would still be cool!

Varied Wood Stain Dresser

This dresser from Erika at Retropolitan is such a beaut it’s hard to believe it was once a MAJOR eyesore. Like nasty peeling paint, tons of scratch and dents, and just plain old ugly! But Erika worked a miracle using some spray paint and wood veneers. The beauty of using veneers is that even a beat up piece can have a smooth, flawless wood finish without the grueling process of refinishing. And here’s the evidence to prove it!
