Mid Century Patchwork Dresser – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends!

How was your week? Last week felt like the busiest week of our summer as far as work goes. John was working on a kitchen cabinet painting project. It rained quite a bit last week and that slows down our job so much. It makes for long days, drips and tricky finishes. Thankfully, I have a hard working husband who worked long days and pushed hard to finish the kitchen in one week! These aren’t the best pictures but here’s a little before and after shot of it for you.


We painted the top cabinets with Benjamin Moore’s Simply White, the bottom with Benjamin Moore’s Gray Mountain. Then we glazed, lightly distressed and did a protective clear coat.

After working long days all week, we decided to go on a day trip to Sturbridge Village after church on Sunday. My parents came along and we had a blast!

So many good things to share, right? Now onto this week’s furniture makeover. We took this mid century dresser, changed the drawers and made it new again.28031588443_333b2a2f27_o

For the outside of this piece, we painted the box with Benjamin Moore’s Simply White. Then we sanded and stained the drawer fronts with multiple stain colors. We used ebony, dark walnut, special walnut, and a gray wash. You could use whatever colors you like though! If you want to see how we paint furniture, check out our How to Paint Furniture post.
