Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 22

It’s time for Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 22.  A hand me down dresser got it’s turn at a new look.  Sometimes it will take me a quite a while to decide how to change a piece.  This piece is one of those take me months almost a year to decide how to change it.  But it finally got a new look.  I only did very little painting to this piece at this time because I was unsure I really wanted to keep it.  I now know after using this piece for over a year it is a great piece of furniture, and I will continue to use it for a long time to come.  I will be giving it another revamp soon to go with the #blackbedroom I am working on now, in my new apartment.  But first I thought i would share it’s first revamp.


I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in Paris grey.  I only added paint to accent the curves of this piece.

As you can see this is a very solid piece of wood furniture.  That I think will last forever.  In it’s next version I will be sure to remove and paint the handles to make them pop.  But for the next couple of weeks {maybe months} it will sit like this for now.


What do you think?  What would you change?  Would you paint the whole thing?  Let me know in comments below.

Stay tunned…xoxo Arod

  1. I like the simple change you made to this. It makes it stand out without being over bearing.

    What a beautiful piece indeed! I would restain that and leave it’s natural wood to stand out. I can’t wait to see what you do with it!

    What a wonderful piece – so much storage space in it. I like the way it is just accented at this time but I am sure you will come up with something amazing for your room. Thank you for sharing at Share It One More Time. Cathy
