Transformed Treasures Tuesdays:
Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 10. It’s a dresser that was just sitting in a corner of my honey’s house. I mentioned to him that J was in need of a dresser and he said just take one of the ones upstairs. “Can’t you do something with it?” Well yes yes I can and did. As you will see below this dresser has gone NY fabulous now. J has always wanted a NYC theme in room. I had seen a bunch of subway art themed re-vamps so decided I could something like that. I picked some street names I knew she would know. My mom has always taken her to NY to people watch. It’s one of her favorite pass times.
Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 10
Here’s how I spotted the dresser I thought I could transform. See it was just sitting in the corner of a room.
I decided to strip the top for a different top look, but knew I would just paint the rest.
I used Annie Sloan Graphite & Pure white I had leftover from previous projects. Yes chalk paint is expensive but it really is so much easier to use. I’m not a fan of the sanded finishes you can do with them. So I do not sand them to scratch off the paint.
I picked up the stencil’s at Micheal’s I got 3 inch as well as 1 inch stencil’s so I could make the letters different sizes as needed. I see some other subway art in my future.
I also decided I wanted to line the drawers so I went online and googled NY fabric and ordered from below site . I paid I think about $10 a yard for each drawer for a total cost of $50. Plus I decided this beauty needed some awesome new knobs which I order threw amazon for $16
So what do you think??
My J is loving her dresser. Hope you all like it too. If you have any questions please leave it in comments and I will get back to you.
