White Lining

White Lining
This before dresser was certainly nothing special, I bet you could pull up Craigslist right now and find several exactly like it. The most notable thing about it to me is that my grandma has almost the exact same piece in her guest room.

What would she think of the after? With a coat of navy and some painstaking outlining, Better After reader Megan transformed it into a total showstopper! I think Gram would love it, as do I!

    I come across this style of dresser quitre often on my hunts at the thrift shop. Although outdated it has GREAT lines and just screams makeover. She did a great job and I love it. The before picture is great with the junk around it. Lets face it…we would all love to have houses that look like magazine pictures all the time but we ALL have socks on the floor at times, papers and other clutter messing up our lives:)
    Nice job on the dresser!

    Love the white detail, how do you do that without getting paint all over?

    My daughter has this complete set, dresser, vanity, nightstand, desk and canopy bed…lol. I’m going to be painting it when it gets warmer. LOVE these colors, but don’t think my daughter will go for it. I will probably do a white with a turquoise. Sure is nice to see there’s hope for this ugly set. I got hers for $100, and it’s been 6 years, so need to do something with it.

    I used a tiny craft paint brush and did all the white detail by hand and then went back over with the gray to fix any misses and mistakes =)
