You probably don’t remember this dresser when I showed it to you last week.
Because it was ugly. I called it the Bird dresser.
All it took was some paint to reinvent it.
I’m now in love with my ‘new’ French dresser.
You have got to see what it looked like before. You won’t believe the transformation!
So here is the Bird dresser that I posted about HERE last week.
I didn’t feel bad about painting it all since it was already half painted.
And now the after!
Unfortunately, most of the handles broke. They were very fragile. I think someone left it out in the rain for some time because there are parts of it that are very warped.
I did my best to repair it before I painted it but some of the imperfections add to its charm.
We found it curbside!
Just look at the details that pop out. I painted it in Linen with Fusion Mineral Paint from the Michael Penney Collection and the white I painted with Champlain freehand.
I need to look for new handles as most are just sitting in the holes, not screwed in. Most of the backings have broken off completely.
I couldn’t wait to show you how it turned out though.
It’s truly amazing how just some paint can transform an entire piece.
It’s gone from an ugly Bird dresser to a beautiful French dresser.
I’m so in love!
