This dresser went from sassy to classy.

Like?  Then read on.

Take a look at this before.  Really?!

My junk-minded, keen eyed sister spotted this one...she knew it had potential! you FORGET which drawer your socks are in?

Stickers...gone.  Drawer labels...gone.  Sand, scrub, repair.

Then look CLOSELY, to see an exciting facelift treatment...see it?

Oh,  there it is!!

Stencil and joint compound. Yeppers.

Then a good coat of primer, paint, and a glaze treatment to accent the fanci-schmancy-stuff.

Then add some home store clearance handles.  Yum.

(please disregard the "missing" handles on the bottom drawer...I "borrowed" two for a JunkFest project last summer)

There's just something about a good distressing, isn't there?

Oh, and the lamp in the corner is my necklace rack.  She's waiting for her turn for a facelift too. 


  1. I've done the same design technic on a few piece before but I must say your stencil/design is very pretty and makes me want to try it again soon. Great job, keep up the good work!

  2. I have done this technique on the front of my armoire as well as the signs that I sell in my shop. Big bang for little bucks! I think I bought my bucket of sheetrock mud a couple years ago for about $5 and there's still plenty left for a few more projects. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. So beautiful! I just came across your blog, love it! you def have a new follower!

  4. Love it! Perfect distressing and nice finish! :)

  5. What a great re-do! Love it!!!
