Pine Dresser makeover

Happy Columbus Day my friends...  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

We had a full jammed packed weekend.  My husband made a homemade apple crisp that was (notice I said was...) Ahhhhmmmmaaazing!  He spent a good portion of his time in the kitchen this weekend :)   He made homemade tomato sauce, chicken cutlets, and dinner for the girls on Sunday so I could wrap up a couple of things.

Last weekend I visited Colonial Williamsburg with the Benjamin Moore team.  I've written about it a couple of times this last week - here & here.   I came home super charged & motivated.  I picked up several sample cans of paint...there's a story to this!  But, what I didn't realize is that prior to leaving I had started on this pine dresser makeover.



I received these gorgeous black glass knobs from D. Lawless Hardware and so I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the pine dresser.  It include black paint (which I had very little left) and antique white paint.



I had a little black paint left in a small can I had leftover from a project I worked on at home.  When I came home from the weekend in Williamsburg I knew I needed to finish up on the pine dresser.  I needed to add another coat of the black paint.  When I pulled out my small little can, guess what I had used?


It was a Benjamin Moore Williamsburg Collection black called Mopboard Black.  How crazy is that...I was in such a hurry to get this project started prior to leaving on my trip, in between all of the testing I had to do prior to leaving, that I didn't even realize what I was using!

Anyway, I needed more of the black paint so off to the Benjamin Moore store I went...  And, home I came with 9 other sample colors from the collection.  Enthusiastic about the colors!?! Maybe just a little!

I painted my black on to give it another coat.  Added my stencil cutouts that I cut out using my Silhouette Cameo once the black was dry.


Painted over the entire pine dresser in antique white.  I also painted the inside of the drawers using Wythe Blue from Benjamin Moore.

And...waaaalaaa...


She has a beautiful design crawling (I like the saying my friend Karin used) across her.  It crawls from the bottom of the side up to the opposite top side.



I ended up having to hand paint a lot of the stenciled areas.  Not sure what happened but my stencil bled this time.  But, it was fine, it proved that I can somewhat free hand paint.

 I added these stunning black glass knobs from D Lawless Hardaware that I feel really gives it that touch that adds to it, but doesn't take away from the the design....they compliment each other!  By the way, if you are in the market for affordable beautiful knobs or pulls (or such) you should check out the D Lawless Hardware website.  I can't wait to show you some of the others I will be using soon!




A fun elegant piece that went from drab to fab with a little paint and some stunning hardware accessories!

Much love, peace & happiness ~


The FTC wants to make sure I let you know that D. Lawless provided the knobs to me. All opinions are my own, honest & accurately!

  2. Very nice. You did a wonderful job of hand painting the design. Hand painting is one of my weaknesses. Just wanted you to know, there's a new linky party in town, Scraptastic Saturdays. It's still going on. I would love for you to link up. All linked ups will be shared via FB/Twitter/Pinterest. Hope to see you there. Have a wondeful weekend.
