This makeover was done for a friend of mine. Her prior roommate left this furniture behind for her to do with what she willed. One person's trash is another person's treasure! She contacted me about redoing these pieces to be more in her taste. After we discussed her preferences, we decided to make them over similar to the coffee table redo I did in September, which you can see here. She wanted the basic color contrasts to be the same as you'll see in the before photo. So we decided to paint the darker parts dark and the lighter parts light, just like it already was. She just wanted it to be shabbied up. Is that a word? Oh well, I'm making it one if it's not.
I actually made over a computer desk and dresser, but I forgot to get a before photo of the desk. You'll get the gist of how it looked by seeing this before photo of the dresser.
|Sleek lines and handles.|
Now my friend has two new looking pieces of furniture for her guest room that are more to her taste. Even with the more modern, sleek lines, I think they came out looking pretty nice. It was certainly more cost effective for her than buying new furniture! See what you think.
First, here's the dresser........
|I had to fill in the extra holes since we switched from handles|
to knobs. The knobs were one's she got from her mom. (so free)
Next up, the desk.......
|The drawer used to have the same handle as the dresser. |
So same process.....holes filled and new knob put on.
Sorry my pictures are a bit blurry. I guess I waited a little too late to take the shots. It was do it then or have no pictures, because I left the next morning and the furniture has already been delivered. Not to mention the fact that my camera is my iPhone. Well, I guess I mentioned it didn't I?
By the way, Spell Check confirmed that shabbied is not a word. Oh well.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me know what you think.
