How to Modernize a Dresser – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends!

How are you? My kids are fighting off the flu here this week and as I type this, I feel like my head is a giant bubble and my ears are clogging so I’m going to keep today’s Tuesday’s Treasures on the shorter side.

I wanted to show you this quick transformation so you can see how new hardware and legs can modernize a piece of furniture.

Here’s what we started with… a very traditional, basic, but solid Ethan Allen dresser. I love the quality of this piece. Even though it looks like lots of little drawers, it’s actually only three so there are two big, deep drawers for lots of storage.


After we removed the hardware and started painting it, I felt like it needed something. It was just so blah!!

We painted it with Benjamin Moore’s Color Old Navy!  If you want to see how we paint furniture, check out our How to Paint Furniture post. After we painted it, we put protective clear coat over the top. The hardware is from Hobby Lobby.
Are you ready for the after?
