This solid wood dresser was in very good shape apart from a few things. All of the plastic drawer runners needed replacing because the wobble of the drawer had them bonking all about. I needed to do some planing on the middle door as it had swelled and was scraping when it was being closed, and the top needed to be sanded very deeply in order to remove some very deep scratches. Other than that, it was in great shape.
I used a very similar shade of gray to the little antique dresser I just refinished (here). It is light and fresh and is versatile in its ability to blend in to any decor.
How about this awesome gray decorative paper! Sha-zam! I think it makes a great addition and contrast having the dark gray beside the light gray.
As usual, I used modpodge to attach this contemporary paper. I love adding paper to drawers behind cupboard doors, it has such 'wow' factor when the door is opened. 'come on in and play with my drawers!' it screams.
Because I didn't distress this piece, I primed the entire thing with Zinsser BIN.
For the middle door, I highlighted the recessed detailing with white, I also painted the hardware white and added a white square trim detail around both sets of outer drawers to add a more chic feel to it.
Im not sure why these pics all came out so blurry, but hopefully you get the idea!
