Thank you to Country Chic Paint for supplying the product for this project. All opinions and thoughts are 100% my own.
Remember when I picked this guy up a couple months ago? It’s finally done! He’s been chillin’ on the porch for a while now and it was time to give him some love. I haven’t done a dresser in a bit and it felt good to work on this one.
I picked it up at a garage sale when I went thrifting with my mom back home and we initially stopped because we saw an interesting table in their lawn. They also had a big tent of items that they hadn’t brought out yet, so naturally I went snooping to see what I could find. My heart skipped a beat as soon as I walked in and saw this guy buried in the back behind various odds and ends. Jack.Pot.
I knew I wanted to go manly with it and originally planned on Navy. But then I got my goodies from Country Chic and couldn’t resist trying out their Hurricane color; hence the name of this post 😉
This dresser is super sturdy and in great condition and has the Bassett Furniture Industries stamp inside. I’ve never picked up a piece that was marked with this, but they’ve been around since the early 1900s and make some beautiful furniture!
The top is perfectly rectangular which I knew would be super easy to tape off and either stain or paint a different color. I wasn’t sure how the veneer would come off, but I really wanted to stain it; so, orbital sander in hand, I dived in. Luckily it came off great!
There’s just something therapeutic about sanding a piece and watching all the beautiful wood appear before your eyes 🙂 I used my fav stain (Dark Walnut) and sealed it up with some flat topcoat. I did the same for the skinny panel across the bottom and then painted the rest Hurricane.
I spray painted the bottom tips of the legs and the drawer pulls I bought all gold, but couldn’t resist some fun map knobs for the top drawer 🙂
This is the perfect Gray color if you’re looking for something with a hint of blue. And I just love the way it contrasts with the dark stain. And those skinny little legs make my heart smile 🙂
Do you have a favorite gray color that you like to use? I know I’ll be using this one again!
Have a fabulous day my friends!
