So this isn’t my house,
and neither is this
although I do like the look of both of them!
And this isn’t my dresser
And although it wasn’t meant to be this is fast becoming a post about things that aren’t mine!
I’m lucky enough to own a 1950’s dresser / sideboard that came from my grandma’s house.
It’s painted brown.
I’m not very happy about the brown.
It has clearly been brown for a very long time … like since the 50’s!
It doesn’t really look like picture of the dresser above although it’s similar – but I’m wondering if I can make it look like that?
Those who know me know that home-handy-person is not my nickname but I feel a project coming on!
My dresser is a recognisable 50’s shape, the doors have a recessed area that could be painted a contrast colour or for some glitz have a little gold leaf applied?
Feel free to send me your suggestions…. You’ve got time. I haven’t even bought the sandpaper or stripper to start step 1 yet!!!
This company makes paint in Victoria – is there any difference between house paint and paint you’d use to paint furniture?
As you can see I may need to do more research and learn a few more tricks before I become a fully fledged renovator.
In my new house there is a little lobby area as you come inside the front door and I’m thinking that once its painted and looking beautifully french country style I could put the dresser there.
Now I just need to find the time to actually carry out this project!
