Dressers Got Back…er Board :) – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends,

How was your week? We had a good one! Last week was the first week since early January that I didn’t feel sick and man oh man was that nice!! I could breath, not cough, not puke. Win, win, win!! We even spent some of the week working on our house projects after working on yours. I painted our front door Dark Teal by Benjamin Moore.


So pretty, right?? I can’t wait to add hanging plants! Unfortunately, in the Northeast putting anything green outside is risky until at least the end of April :(.

For this week’s furniture makeover, I wanted to share this dresser transformation. Here it is before:


When we bought this originally,  we really wanted to add barn board to the front of the dresser, but with the angle of the trim work on the drawers it just wasn’t going to work. We had another idea to add backer board instead because it’s so much thinner. So we stained the backer board with a gray stain and attached it with Liquid Nail.

We painted it using Benjamin Moore’s color Simply White and then lightly distressed it. If you’d like to see how we paint furniture, check out our How to Paint Furniture post.  We also added new hardware to give it a more modern look!
