It’s no secret that I love painted furniture. Just add spending hours on Pinterest looking at painted furniture ideas to my list of hobbies. To me, painted furniture + vintage classic pieces = perfection! I’m always on the hunt for perfect wood pieces. Very rarely do I find anything in my price range (ie. cheap or free) that doesn’t need a little work.
A few weeks ago Matt found this piece of vintage furniture. It’s a small dresser, that has been through a lot.
There’s no telling how many different drawer pulls they put on this bad boy but, we negotiated the price with the seller and that included him keeping the knobs that he had put on. Honestly, that was a relief!
Ever since I painted the wood and white two toned chest turned nightstand, I’ve been itching to do another two toned piece. I also wanted something neutral that could go in any room in our house. Since we are moving in a few months, I’m not sure what kind of furniture musical chairs we are going to have to pull off so having something neutral was important. And seriously, you can’t go wrong with white and gray!
After we used a tub (just about) of wood filler to fill the massive holes from the previous drawer pulls, we put on these pewter pulls and I pretty much love them.
I think it gives the perfect touch of modern to this vintage piece.
I’m so glad we were able to snag this piece and bust out a furniture makeover.
Remember when I painted these ones?
I’d love to know, what’s been your best CL furniture find?
